Zappa - BBC iplayer

2 hour documentary on Zappa

Super footage of Frank’s life - quite incredible.



Watching it Thursday night. Probably.

Didn’t know much about Zappa. Watched this Saturday night, very interesting and informative.

On my list to watch.

Is this the recent Alec Winter movie / doc?

Shall be checking that out today after watching, ‘On Bass … Tina Weymouth!’ yesterday. Also on iPlayer and excellent.

Yes directed by Alex Winter


I managed to lose my Joe’s Garage vinyl copy years ago, grrr! Still a regular Spotify playlist favourite, have always loved his guitar work (and sense of humour :grinning:)

Thanks Andy - surprising it’s made it to TV so quickly. Will put it on my watch list.

Watched it this afternoon. Can’t say I’m a massive fan but I came out of it with a certain amount of respect for the seriousness of the man. Much more satisfying than the recent Velvets film. Thought it was excellent actually.
