Die Beatles sind dagegen Waisenknaben
pp 26-27, 29


In Amerika ist der Teufel los. Der Teufel heißt Frank Zappa. Mit seiner Gruppe „Mothers of Invention” bringt er die Teenager zur Raserei und die Polizei auf die Palme. Das hat es selbst im Land der unbegrenzten Möglichkeiten noch nicht gegeben.

Frank Zappa ist der Größte. Er ist bunt, laut und verrückt. Ihm und seinen „Mothers of Invention” liegen seit kurzem Amerikas Teenager zu Füßen.
