The best Frank Zappa memoir yet, as told by the early members of the Mothers of Invention.

The Mothers of Invention were a band of anarchic, free-spirited, musically telepathic mavericks headed by the genius of Frank Zappa. Billy James recaptures the early years as remembered by those who were there; Jimmy Carl Black, Roy Estrada, Bunk Gardner, Buzz Gardner and Don Preston. Fully illustrated, the book investigates the oddball humor that surrounded the Zappa entourage from 1964-1970 and presents a fitting tribute.
