R.I.P. Frank

Dave Rimmer, MOJO, January 1994

[NOTE: This was part of Mojo’s obituary for Frank Zappa, and was published in January 1994. The brief was simply to look at his career by going back through the records.]

"A composer's job essentially involves the decoration of fragments of time. Without time, nothing can happen. Without music to decorate it, time is just a bunch of boring production deadlines, or a collection of dates by which bills must be paid."
— Frank Zappa
