We report news that is bouncing on the net a few days and that will interest all fans of Frank Zappa: for better or for worse. This is the listing of his house to finance a “definitive” documentary about one of the most important composers and musicians of the twentieth century. To be sure, the documentary is only part of a project that also includes the publication of a book and the “sharing” of unreleased material archive. At the time the film’s title is “Who the F * @% is Frank Zappa?” and the whole project was promoted by the director and actor Alex Winter, who has launched a fundraising campaign on Kickstarter that will remain open until April 9. Winter has been authorized by the Zappa family to use all the material in the archives of the composer’s house, which will be sold to the tune of nine million dollars. Archives – needless to say – is the Mecca for zappofili. But as the specific “SENTIREASCOLTARE” portal, “regardless of the crazy amount required for the home buying and selling, there are other prizes that may be relevant zappofili hardcore, ranging from pieces of film taken directly from the musician to credit on the credits, unique pieces taken from the personal property of Zappa to a tour at the legendary Joe’s Garage (the work name and the disk of 1979) or the possibility of playing the guitar and also the rocker to drive his Rolls Royce “.
Information about the project can be found here.
