25 years ago today – we still miss you Frank!

Today it is 25 years since Frank Zappa passed away. Today fans and old sidemen pay tribute to Frank on different Zappa and music forums on the internet.

Bass player Arthur Barrow writes on Facebook about the last time he saw Frank: in 1990

"It was a great visit, even though it was tinged with sadness. I stayed there until 1:30 in the morning - four hours, just Frank and me hanging out together with no interruptions."

Bob Zappa, one of Frank's brothers re-publishes what he wrote on Facebook on December 4, 2017, which is an excerpt from his book. It describes the very short call from Frank's wife Gail Zappa on December 5, 1993. She simply told him that Frank was dead and that there would not be a funeral since he had already been buried.

Drummer Morgan Ågren:

"On this day 1993, Frank Zappa left us. Still empty without him... "

Denny Walley, guitarist who played with Frank on several tours in the 70's has published a photo on Facebook of him and Frank.

"This photo was taken in Franks studio several months before he died. 
R.I.P. friend"

Pauline Butcher, author of Freak Out! My Life With Frank Zappa:

"...as if one could ever forget him. A myriad of memories remain."

In memoriam:
Frank Zappa, December 21, 1940 – December 4, 1993.
