Baltimore statue will honor Frank Zappa

By Washington Post editors

A bust of legendary musician and Baltimore native Frank Zappa will officially be dedicated Sept. 18, The Baltimore Sun reports.

Members of Zappa's family are expected to attend the ceremony, which will take place at Eastern Avenue and South Conkling Street in Highlandtown, where the bust will be erected. The location outside the Southeast Anchor Library was chosen in part because Zappa was a staunch advocate for free speech.

The bust, which will sit atop a tall column, is a gift to the city from a Zappa fan club in Lithuania, and is being readied for shipment to the United States.

Frank Zappa is an American Hero who did more to end the cold war then anyone else.
it's about time we honor him.

No surprise the gift is from Europe. While virtually forgotten here, Zappa's "legit-serious" chamber/orchestral works are performed across the pond.
