|GZ and FZ, London 1972.|
Gail Zappa, widow of music artist Frank Zappa, passed away yesterday after some time of illness.
She was the one who ran Frank's business. She wasn't loved by all his fans. Some of them thought she did not allow the music to be heard, trying to forbid festivals to perform it etc.
Many seem to forget that she had a great impact on Frank's output over the years, and that she indeed released a whole bunch of Frank's music after his death.
Arthur Barrow (bass player with Frank 1978-80) comments on Facebook: "She could be hard to get along with sometimes, but Frank really loved her."
