Pauline Butcher worked as Frank Zappa's secretary between 1968 and 1972. She lived with the Zappas and the Mothers of Invention and met many other interesting music profiles during that time.
Her memoir book Freak Out! My Life with Frank Zappa is planned for release in October by Plexus Publishing.
In 2008 she told BBC about her time with Zappa:
"At one point there were 12 of us living there, always people coming and going. Captain Beefheart would jam all day with Frank, Eric Clapton... Frank collected people, all through his life, you see. I'd work from ten at night to three in the morning, then get up at two - that's how it was."
