“I was in a place called The Experience, one night in '68 or '69. Mike Bloomfield was in there, Jimi Hendrix was in there, Elvin Bishop. The premier guitar players: all playing, all taking a solo. Then Frank gets up and does an imitation of everyone there - Mike, Jimi, the whole thing - and then plays his own stuff. You should've seen the look on Hendrix's face! He blew everybody away. People were just astounded at this guy's virtuosity. I'd watch him work in the studio and he was so far beyond anything I could imagine. All the stuff you hear on the Zappa albums that sounds like little improvisations and mistakes, they're all written - every little squeak, bump and fart. He was truly one of a kind. There's nobody else out there trying to even be Frank because he's too hard to imitate. We could use a Frank Zappa right now...”
