Zappa And the And – the Final Blog!

20130204-221755.jpg

Well – I finally got my copies of my Zappa book last week – so this will probably be the last time I blog about it (hip – hip……). I would really appreciate anyone helping with the social network side of things by liking/sharing/etc etc. You can read a sample chapter from the link below – and if you are interested in a copy – I think direct from Ashgate is the best bet at the moment.

Thanks to those of you that have given the book support over its development

    Hi, I have just finished reading this book after having ordered it via my University Library (Leeds Uni). I was one of only two people to ‘pre-order’ it into the library (who are these crazy people!?!). I’m finally happy to have found a book that I can recommend to others if they are interested in learning about Zappa’s music through a selection of short, digestible contexts. I feel that context is everything when considering Zappa’s musical output.

    Thanks very much for the positive comments. For info – I have a Facebook page for the book, where I am hoping to encourage dialogue about the book’s content. You can access it at http://www.facebook.com/FrankZappaAndTheAnd

    I will post your comments if that’s ok?
