I'm glad to forward a message from Pauline Butcher:

Quote:
The book, Freak Out: My Life with Frank Zappa, tells my story when I worked for Frank from 1968 to 1972. I lived at the log cabin for four months with his wife, Gail, Moon, and the entourage that Frank gathered around him. After that, I moved along Woodrow Wilson Drive, half a mile from Frank and Gail, and worked nocturnally in line with Frank's hours. Although it was forty years ago, I not only kept a diary but wrote frequent 20-page typed letters to my mother. These are the basis from which I've woven the chapters. I could not have done it without them. Some people may not agree with my view of Frank, but I hope I have been fair and balanced.

Yes, NikZah, there's a couple...only one i haven't seen before though (FZ&MOI with Pam Z boarding the plane to England in 67)...there's some of the Beefheart/jagger/ basement jam that were posted on here a short while back, and a couple of nice snapshots of GZ but that's about it...

Looks like it'll be an ok read...with lots of stuff about the lifestyle and people surrounding FZ at the time Smile
