All the good music has already been written by people with wigs and stuff.
Frank Vincent Zappa (pronounced /ˈzæpə/; December 21, 1940 – December 4, 1993) was an American composer, electric guitarist, record producer, and film director. In a career spanning more than 30 years, Zappa wrote rock, jazz, electronic, orchestral, and musique concrète works. He also directed feature-length films and music videos, and designed album covers. Zappa produced almost all of the more than 60 albums he released with the band Mothers of Invention and as a solo artist.
Thats all well and great but what i really care about is that trademark mustache. Now frank did it a little differently because he wore a soul patch as well. While normally I think this would take away from the power of the stache...in his case I feel he knew what he was doing.
"One of the most artistically influential musicians whose mustache inspired a style, in that it brought in the Soul Patch, to a style that's now called 'The Zappa,' which is the Chevron mustache with a small Soul Patch." -AMI Chairman Aaron Perlut
Who knows, on my extensive mustache journey....i might just have to give "The Zappa" a try.
In the words of Ron Burgandy...."That's baby makin music right there..."
