From Zappa Wiki Jawaka
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Can you please look into the Appliantology article? I'm not really sure if the name L. Ron Hoover was really a combination of Hubbard, the FBI director and vacuum cleaners.
I think the way Zappa worked there is nearly no way that he did not mean all three concepts.

I don't see either how J. Edgar Hoover fits in there: Joe's Garage doesn't make any reference to either him or the FBI; there's definitely nothing about any connection between him and L. Ron Hoover in the linked pages; and besides, the name "L. Ron Hoover" can just as well be constructed out of "L. Ron Hubbart" and "Hoover vacuum cleaners" (both of which are clearly alluded to in Joe's Garage).

If nobody has any sources to support the connection to J. Edgar, I'd say let's remove it.

I admit FBI-Hoover is a bit thin ... it's just the name-likeness and the First name abbreviation and Middle name ... I think you're right, lets taake the thing off. Propellerkuh
