Most people don’t know he was completely straight: no drugs, no alcohol. I had the privilege of seeing The Mothers of Invention in concert performing Billy the Mountain at a small theater in Boston.
His solo album, Hot Rats, is a tour-de-force.
So he was clean and sober when he wrote and played his music, and when he and his wife named their son Dweezle and their daughter Moon Unit.
Who the hell wants a boring musician?
