This variant is currently sold out
Frank Zappa was an American musician, record and film producer, songwriter and composer. In his career spanning more than 30 years, Zappa composed rock, jazz and orchestral works. He began writing classical music in high school and at the same time played drums in rhythm and blues bands; later changing to electric guitar.
Frank Zappa is seen here wearing a Radio Clyde T-Shirt.
Andy Park, the programme director at Radio Clyde in Glasgow, Scotland claims he not only designed the logo for the radio station but he actually gave the t-shirt to Frank Zappa when he was there for an interview in 1980. He also got to sit in on Zappa auditioning bass players in his LA-based rehearsal space. Park recollects: ‘Frank was sat on this high stool, while I was sitting in an armchair. The bassists had to perform the bass line from Frank’s songs, which is difficult enough! Most got about two bars in before Frank would stop them and tell them they’d got it wrong. They got a few shots, but it wasn’t the easiest environment to rehearse.’
