“Frank seemed more intent on maintaining control of the individual band members than he was with fixing what had become an obvious musical problem. He wasn’t going to let the band force his hand on making a change, even though the music was suffering, and he cancelled the remainder of the tour.” – Robert Martin, 22 May 2009




The complete interview with Robert can be found in Andrew's book Frank Talk: The Inside Stories Of Zappa's Other People (Wymer UK, 2017).
