Frank Zappa - The Lost Interview
Frank Zappa is often candid, eerily prophetic, funny and honest with this interview. Things about him I don't think are unique to this interview, so it is very enjoyable to listen to him talk about a variety of subjects, including: early influences, an altercation with "the elite" of his hometown, the scene in L.A. in the 60's, JFK, how Mothers of Invention started, the "threat" of artistic people, America's version democracy, the importance of education, campaign funding, communism, the fall of the Berlin wall, on meeting Jimi Hendrix, the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr and Bobby Kennedy, conspiracy theories, space exploration and much more. The title on YouTube indicates there are 7 parts to this interview, but I was unable to find the 7th part, so there's 6 9-10 minute videos.
