On 19th September, the residents of Baltimore, Md., (USA) were treated to an array of celebrations to honour the memory of one of the city’s most famous sons – the composer, musician and iconoclast of rock, Frank Zappa.
The occasion? The unveiling of a Frank Zappa bust, a generous gift to the people of Baltimore by Zappa fans in the small Baltic nation of Lithuania. The bronze bust is an exact replica of one that has stood in the Lithuanian capital, Vilnius, since 1995. The unveiling ceremony was attended by Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake along with Zappa’s widow and three of his grown children.
