Book Review: Frank Zappa: The Hot Rats Book

Here’s a 50-year retrospective on the landmark Zappa record Hot Rats, through the photographs of Bill Gubbins, who documented the now infamous Hot Rats recording sessions, capturing Zappa and his co-creators during a period of peak creativity. Also included in the book is an interview with Gubbins, conducted by Ahmet Zappa, son of Frank, and executor of the Zappa Family Trust. Laid out in coffee-table sized hardcover, the book is a great memento to any Zappa enthusiast.
