    Thank you, thank you! :D

    Nope, can't say I've had the experience playing with Frank Zappa but I did listen to a lot of his stuff. :bassist: Some people have told me my own music has some Zappa-like tendencies.

    Remember it was your idea. Here is THE LIST:

    And before anybody says the same stuff they always do when I re-post this, the names on this list were ones I came up with in 1988. So I don't care that you know some comparatively major artist or album named something on the list. I came up with it first. Okay?
