“Laides, if you give me your panties, I promise I’ll never wash them again.”
The above passage was Frank Zappa’s on stage pitch to beautiful women back in the early 80′s. Naturally, it worked. It worked so well that by the end of the 1981 ”Tinseltown Rebellion” tour, the star had amassed hundreds of unwashed underpants.
The question of what do with these underpants plagued Zappa for a tumultuous 12 month span until he finally commissioned a quilt to be fabricated from the garments. It was handed over to artist Emily Janes and turned into a playing card inspired quilt with Zappa featured as the King of Spade.
Just like these two, you can visit the quilt as it currently resides at the Hard Rock Cafe in Biloxi, Mississippi.
Zappa, who passed away 19 years ago today is survived by his children Dweezil, Moon Unit, Thin Muffin, Ahmet, and Diva.
