Ever wondered how Frank Zappa runs his band and how much it costs to put on one of his tours? I have and this video featuring a recorded interview in 1984 with the great man answers these questions in the only way Frank Zappa knows how.

Here’s something to think about. Are you able to speak about your band or solo music career in such a direct and succinct manner?

Yes, I know that you create art but remember, as a musician either running a band or a solo career, you are also running a business and in business you need to know what you’re doing, where you’re going and the numbers to support it.

On a personal note, I would’ve loved the opportunity to audition for Frank Zappa’s band. I might not have been successful but the experience would’ve been so worth it.

Until next time, get out there and do it,
