- About me:
Zappa fan since I was 15, right around when I started playing guitar. While I don't agree with all of his personal views, since I'm a born again Christian now, it doesn't stop me from appreciating this amazing music. I have about half of the catalog! He has been one of my inspirations for recording my own stuff. In addition to working a job in I.T., I sing at my church and make my own avant garde music. In case anyone's interested my music is posted on Soundcloud as Riq Czyznik
