Being Frank - My Time With Frank Zappa
By Nigey Lennon
California Classic Books, 1995
From the bookcover:
"Frank Zappa – musical iconoclast, guitar hero, and sociological observer - was known for his uncompromising honesty, but was strangely silent about his private life. Now, author/musician Nigey Lennon, who knew Zappa personally and professionally, takes the reader on a fascinating trip behind the scenes in 'Zappa's Universe' ... on the road, at home, and in the studio. BEING FRANK draws on Lennon's unique relationship with Zappa to present the rare intimate glimpse of this complex, fascinating character that no biographer could – and which Zappa himself wouldn't."
