... As a bassist! Not just guitarist and musical visionary. I'm listening to Hot Rats right now, and I see that he's also credited in the liner notes for the excellent bass playing on this album. Zappa was an awesome man. I really wish he was still alive. By the way, anyone know what basses he used in recording? Something Fender, I'd imagine. Also, and pics of Frank playing bass? EDIT: Nevermind, it has Frank Zappa credited for bass, but later on it credits Max Bennet for most songs.
