Seperated at Birth?

Well, this is just too funny. My old colleague Glenn Kenny, doing business over at the Premiere website, notes a striking resemblance between these two grizzled rock vets --



-- and these two (barely) twenty-something weisenheimers.


Coming to theatres in 2009: A Judd Appatow Production -- Jonah Hill and Michael Cera are Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan in Happy Together: The Flo and Eddie Story!

Flo and Eddie were great.

I saw them in the spring of 1973 when they opened for Alice Cooper on that band's Billion Dollar Babies tour.

That was before I discovered that the two had been in the Mothers of Invention, which was another pleasant surprise.

the double knits
they are the pits

My favorite quote off the liner notes for the Mothers of Invention's "Freak Out" is from, iirc, a potential manager: "Stick with me and I'll make you as big as The Turtles!"

I kid you not.

'sup BG?

"Stick with me and I'll make you as big as The Turtles!"


heh. I always wondered how Frank ever hooked up with the former Turtles singers. I always liked the Turtles, but they didn't seem to me to be a fit with Zappa.

Of course, I would have been wrong...

What a great album THAT was/is. Who could imagine that they would freak out somewhere in Minnesota? And here Boing Boing today is describing an "excellent 60s underground internet radio station." I haven't had a chance to check it out yet but it looks promising.

They were doing performance art before it had a name, and making money at it.

I once had dinner with Howard Kaylan (and about a dozen other people) in L.A. We were attending a book signing by a fantasy novelist that we all admired and were invited to dine with said friend/author afterward. Howard was as big a "fanboi" as any of us - except he arrived in a Rolls Royce. :) :)
