Special note by script:

Paris 1988

In the late 80s I was starting as a freelance-journalist and by chance
I met Angie, an old english friend, at the Zappa-Show in Dortmund. She
was working with the Zappa-crew and told me that, if I would like to see
another show, she could organize tickets for me. Cool. A couple of days
later, 3 or 4 days before Paris, I came in contact with a former german
musician in a local pub. He was not a musician anymore. He was
delivering international newspapers. His tour was going from Cologne via
Brussels to... Paris. My chance!! Thats how I came to Paris.
In Paris I went straight to the Zenith, hours before the show. Angie
gave me an invitation-ticket and I was in!

Because I had nothing else to do I was "crusing" around the venue, when
suddenly some journalists were walking towards the hall. I thought "why
not?" and followed them... right into the Frank Zappa press conference!
Cool. And then Frank himself came in and was taking his seat 2 rows in
front of me, to answer the questions of the journalists. Of course I did
take my chance and asked 3 or 4 questions, for instance, if he might
think of playing with Ruth Underwood again (after the reunion with the
Fowler-Brothers...) Frank said, that he was still in contact with Ruth
but that she was married and had children and therefore it was never an
idea for him or Ruth to come with him on tour.
That was my little nice tiny conversation with Frank Zappa.
After that there was a photo-shooting ... and for hours I am looking now
for the few pics I took. I will find them, thats for sure... and then I
will post them here. Promised.

The Paris 88 concert was a highlight. Have fun. And a very big Thank
You to walk and flambay for converting my old tapes into this seed.

yours, script
