Thank you. Being a Deep Purple fan- this day to us also means Tommy Bolin. 12/4/76. If only he had lived- he could have pushed the boundaries of music as Zappa did. Funk, rock, jazz, randb, reggae- Bolin did it all. I didn't realize Frank died 17 years later the same day. Thank you.

I was just thinking about Frank before I saw this thread and realized today was Dec 4th....

 

I was actually going to ask a question that was Zappa related and since I'm always starting new threads, instead I'll piggyback on this one for a change.

 

I have always been fascinated with Zappa's use of writing out Rock music using standard notation like a classical composer. I know that Vai got his foot in the door with Frank as a transcriber.

 

Does anyone know of any other famous Rock musicians that used standard notation in their workflow?

Yeah, I didn't realize Zappa and Bolin died on the same day! I think I have all of bolins recordings and most of Zappa. Bolin videos are hard to find aren't they?

 

Is anybody else playing hooky from their band tonight? Told'em I had to have some family time, too cold over here in Oklahoma anyway. Last week We were standing around outside the club with t-shirts!

I read an article where Emerson mentioned that he charted out some of his stuff. Don't remember the context, however.
