    It would be nice if you or the author of the original article had credited the drawing to its creator, Roger Price. It appeared, with caption, in his book DROODLES, a quarter of a century before Zappa’s album.

  2. Hi Rob,

    Thanks for your comment. I was aware that the caption didn’t originate with Zappa’s album, but was unaware of the backstory. It’s good now that I can refer to that in my own presentations.

    Best,

    Dave
