FUQ = Frequently Unasked Questions

Andrew Greenaway:

In 2020, to celebrate 20 years of bringing Zappa news and spoos to the masses via my Idiot Bastard Son website (, I posted twelve 'for-one-month-only' essays. These provided answers to some of those questions that no one ever asks: about Frank's family, friends and those he worked with; the significant women in his life; the people who photogtraphed him; and other random stuff.

Yes, I gave a dozen FUQs (Frequently Unasked Questions)!

Here are most of those - slightly updated and modified - together with a few other articles (including one about Frank's brief stint as a beat poet) that I have posted at IBS.

Over 25,000 words in a spiffy little password protected PDF file. Read it on your phone, laptop, Kindle, or print it out and staple it to your neighbour's bird table. Whatever.

For every copy ordered, the Idiot will donate one pound to Prostate Cancer UK.
