ISBN-13: 9788415996576

Es «la verdadera historia» porque su autor emplea este libro como ariete para demoler las fábulas pueriles que circulaban sobre su vida. Zappa nos cuenta el arranque, el nudo y el desenlace de su accidentada experiencia musical, narra a cuchillada limpia sus debates con el puritanismo censor y denuncia las patrañas que mandamases arrojan sin descanso a l. a. credulidad pública. Su agudo olfato noticeó siempre el olor a boñiga.

Aquí asistimos a disparatados encuentros con eminencias como Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton o Al Gore; contemplamos las vergüenzas de un juicio grotesco en los tribunales de los angeles monarquía británica o de una estrafalaria inquisición en el Senado estadounidense; oímos sabios consejos para instruir a l. a. infancia en el racionalismo escéptico y el higiénico rechazo de todos los dogmas eclesiásticos… Aquí se revientan los empalagosos cánones de l. a. memoria pop para construir una reflexión ineludible sobre nuestro tiempo y nuestra necedad.
