9780859654791: Freak Out! My Life with Frank Zappa

In 1967, 21-year-old Pauline Butcher was working for a London secretarial agency when one evening a call came through from a Mr Frank Zappa asking for a typist to come to his hotel room. The assignment would change her life forever.

After this chance encounter, at Frank's request, Pauline moved with him, his family and his band the Mothers of Invention to a log cabin in the Hollywood Hills. There, the 'straight' young girl from Twickenham spent her days in the company of a succession of famous names, including Mick Jagger, Marianne Faithfull, George Harrison, Eric Clapton, Captain Beefheart and Tiny Tim. Often working nights and sleeping days, for three years Pauline served as Zappa's secretary, running his fan club, the United Mutations and organising rehearsals, live appearances and recording sessions for the GTOs (Girls Together Outrageously), an all-female rock act supported and produced by Zappa.

Freak Out! is the captivating story of a naive young girl thrust into the mad world of a musical legend. A vivid depiction of the late sixties rock ’n’ roll scene and the stark realities behind Hollywood’s perceived glamor, this memoir is also the most revealing and intimate portrait of Frank Zappa ever written.

From the Author:

In 1968, Frank Zappa urged me to write about life with him at the log cabin in Laurel Canyon where Gail Zappa, their baby daughter, Moon Unit, and eight others, in various ways, also shacked up. Though I made many attempts, it was not until recently when I discovered that my mother had kept in a shoe box the 20-page letters I had written home 40 years earlier, that I found I could write this book.

From the Back Cover:

In 1967, a chance encounter with a musical legend changed Pauline Butcher's life forever. Summoned to Frank Zappa's London hotel room to transcribe the lyrics of his album, Absolutely Free, the young English secretary experienced an unlikely meeting of minds with the charismatic American rock star who subsequently invited Pauline to work for him in Los Angeles.

Living at the famous log cabin in the Hollywood Hills with Frank, his family and members of his eccentric entourage, Pauline spent her days and nights in the company of a succession of famous names. Drinking sessions with Mick Jagger and Marianne Faithful, visits from Eric Clapton and Captain Beefheart, and the fevered rehearsals of Zappa's band - the Mothers of Invention - were nothing out of the ordinary in a house routinely populated by freaks, drop-outs, drug casualties and dreamers.

While running Zappa's fan club and managing the GTOs, an all-girl rock act supported and produced by Frank, Pauline learned to navigate the highs and lows of life behind the scenes with a rock'n'roll icon, gaining an unparalleled insight into Zappa's life and work in the process. A vivid depiction of the late sixties music industry and the sometimes stark realities behind Hollywood's perceived glamour, this memoir is also the most revealing and intimate portrait of Frank Zappa ever written.
