Zappa was a brilliant guitar player, but Duane Allman was one of my favorites.

I was flabberfasted when Zappa came onto the stage in Prague right after Vaclav Havel! Apparently he'd been helping underground bands there before the Velvet Revolution. Hell of a guy. Once in Milwaukee he was introducing the band and got to Ruth Underwood: "And on marimbas and big tits, Ruthie Underwood - shake 'em Ruthie!"

Something of a genius. His orchestral works were performed to acclaim in Prague and Vienna as well, and Pierre Boulez conducted his music for an album called "The Perfect Stranger"...
