  1. Most of the page reads like a Zappa fan came by and wrote about his favourite musician. Now, I love Zappa as much as the next music lover, but do we really need a page on him? His (brief) testimony for the PMRC can be put in that page, and other than that, there's not much left... He was critical of the religious right; well, he and millions of other people. Did he every do anything noteworthy about it to deserve a page here? Carpetsmoker (talk) 23:42, 15 January 2016 (UTC)
    You could say the same about the Beatles. CorruptUser (talk) 00:41, 16 January 2016 (UTC)
    You should reconsider the article as it is now. Mʀ. Wʜɪsᴋᴇʀs, Esϙᴜɪʀᴇ (talk/stalk) 04:21, 16 January 2016 (UTC)
    Most people didn't testify before Congress about it. ħumanUser talk:Human 04:24, 16 January 2016 (UTC)
    Zappa was a civil libertarian of great intelligence, zeal and eloquence. Wish we'd had him longer.---Mona- (talk) 04:28, 16 January 2016 (UTC)


  1. True, millions were against the Religious right, but could they sing against it like Zappa? Typhoon (talk) 23:50, 15 January 2016 (UTC)
  2. Current article is missional. Cømяade FυzzчCαтPøтαтø (talk/stalk) 01:08, 16 January 2016 (UTC)
  3. Absolutely. It does not read like it was written by a fan of Mr. Zappa, it reads like it was written by an opponent of censorship. We do support opponents of censorship, I think. ħumanUser talk:Human 04:19, 16 January 2016 (UTC)
  4. Absolutely keep. He was in my pantheon of gods; well, he would be if I had them. If it needs work, do the work.---Mona- (talk) 04:24, 16 January 2016 (UTC)
  5. Keep. Certainly missional.--TheroadtoWiganPier (talk) 04:36, 16 January 2016 (UTC)
  6. People being musicians doesn't make them non-missional per se. (talk) 07:09, 16 January 2016 (UTC)
  7. Keep: missional. Does humor belong in RW? Bongolian (talk) 07:20, 16 January 2016 (UTC)



  1. Too biased to vote. If Zappa was alive, I, as a straight male, would be desperate to have his babies. CorruptUser (talk) 00:42, 16 January 2016 (UTC)
  2. Human's active did you ping him? There's a pile of music articles in funspace, fwiw - David Gerard (talk) 00:58, 16 January 2016 (UTC)
