The era when Francesco Zappa clashed with the Duke of York compares not to Frank Zappa meeting the Mothers of Prevention. Francesco had a patron at least, with privilege. FZ took a M.O.P. to clear the Congressional Halls of the censorship of music and lyrics. The question he asked everyone to consider was always Does Humor Belong In Music? You can laugh at Jazz From Hell but armed only with a Guitar, FZ proved You Can't Do That Onstage Anymore, whether in Helsinki or on Broadway, The Hard Way was not the only way to get The Best Band You Never Heard In Your Life to Make a Jazz Noise Here. So even if you must insist on Mothermania that was only the beginning and only a small part of the experience of Understanding America.
