Lee Clement provided gong for The Grand Wazoo.

  • ""Carolina Hard-Core Ecstasy". That was written actually for the girl who played the gong in (...) "Eat That Question". She used to work at the recording studio and she was from South Carolina. That was when I was in the wheelchair and I was working there on the The Grand Wazoo and Waka/Jawaka albums. And I needed to have a gong overdubbed. And the way we were working, I wasn't in a regular studio, it was in a mix room and in order to do an overdub, since we didn't have a studio facility was there we had to run a microphone into the toilet which had joined the mix room. So we had this girl in this little tiled toilet off to the side of this thing playing this gong. I think she never had so much fun in her life while just thrashing this gong near the fade-out of "Eat That Question". The song was based on stories she had told me." - Frank Zappa, The Supplement Tape, Interview with Co de Kloet.
