There is much of early Zappa that seems very satirical. I think a lot of people liked him for being an almost Weird Al of music of the 60’s. He loved it obviously and embraced it, especially to satirize Sgt. Peppers.
I think albums like Hot Rats, Grand Wazoo, and working with “serious” musicians like Jean Luc Ponty, George Duke, Aynsley Dunbar, The Underwoods, etc. That definitely was an opening to the “serious music” reputation.
That seems about right. I think basically the satirical/comedic element and the virtuosic music element switched places foreground/background wise. They were always both there but the focus changed. It’s probably also subjective in terms of what you value as a listener.
I didn’t play FF this year for the first time in forever. I found that it ruins the game for me. I root for players that I have starting even if they are playing against the Packers. That ain’t right. Back to just rooting for a team. I don’t even watch the box score anymore to see the stats of all the players on my team and the team I’m going against. That got frustrating. Anyway, I think I’ll go this route again next year. Less stress.
