This is a great video recording of Frank Zappa on CNN Crossfire in 1986. The talk revolves around censorship of „rock videos“ and although this is dated material it is up-to-the-minute information in many ways as well.
Zappa does a wonderful job in turning down his conservative counterpart from the Washington Post during the talk. While everybody tries to trick him into making statements about „rock videos“ he responds by „it is just words“ which is so right. A wonderful lesson in how to respond to idiots.
Found this on Apollo Pony and converted it to iPod Video format (MPEG-4 H.264 320×240) for your personal viewing pleasure ;)
Nice video ! And there it was – that one idiot guy tried to win the thread by mentioning Hitler. Right according Godwin’s Law ;)
inspiring mind..thanx for that!
gotta get my old frank records out now:)
p.s. pls drop me a line*
megageil…können wir das bitte ins Pflichtprogramm für CCC-Sprecher aufnehmen? ;-)
Frank Zappa is the best president you never had in your life. For those of you who are not aware, he wanted to run for president in the US until he was diagnosed cancer.
