Zappa and Lennon + Noisy Yoko

“YouTube” has a video of Frank Zappa and John Lennon (and Yoko Ono) playing on the same stage of Fillmore East. A famous encounter, which has been much talked about, but Zappa was not able to include this session to his album due to a copyright issue. Lennon did include it to his album. And Yoko… why was she on the stage, just making annoying noises as always?

Every time I listen to Zappa, I’m amazed with his clear diction. Maybe I should wear a brace to realign my teeth to improve my pronunciation…

I ordered a Japanese book published in 1977 (「日本プロ野球1977」) and asked my good friend and almost the only contact I still have in Japan to receive it for me. The book is an invaluable source of information and photos!! I regret I didn’t buy it when it was published, but now it could be obtained much cheaply. I’m so eager to see if the record book had any mention of the dismissal of Manager Nomura. Probably not, as the book is all about the games. Still, I hope to see photos of Fujita, Fujiwara, Enatsu and Kadota…
