“In the middle of my solo on King Kong, someone threw a firecracker up to the ceiling, which was covered with dry palm leaves, and started the fire. While that was happening, Zappa’s sewer backed up in his LA home and the entire basement studio was flooded with piss and shit.” – Don Preston, 8 February 2001




The complete interview with Don can be found in Andrew's book Frank Talk: The Inside Stories Of Zappa's Other People (Wymer UK, 2017).
