His son, meanwhile, prepped himself to become an icon of the peace & love crowd. Zappas manager, by the way, is a shadowy character by the name of Herb Cohen, who had come out to L. from the Bronx with his brother Mutt just before the music and club scene began heating up. Those travels, curiously, had taken him to the Congo in 1961, at the very time that leftist Prime Minister Patrice Lumumba was being tortured and killed by our very own CIA.
Not to worry though; according to one of Zappas biographers, Cohen wasnt in the Congo on some kind of nefarious intelligence mission.
It was also not, as we have also seen on more than one occasion, an attack that was quite deliberately provoked.
And it is probably safe to say that Franks dad also had little regard for the youth culture of the 1960s, given that Francis Zappa was, in case you were wondering, a chemical warfare specialist assigned to where else? Edgewood is, of course, the longtime home of Americas chemical warfare program, as well as a facility frequently cited as being deeply enmeshed in MK-ULTRA operations.
Over the course of the next three-and-a-half years, millions of tons of bombs, missiles, rockets, incendiary devices and chemical warfare agents will be dumped on the people of Vietnam in what can only be described as one of the worst crimes against humanity ever perpetrated on this planet. By April 1965, fully 25,000 uniformed American kids, most still teenagers barely out of high school, will be slogging through the rice paddies of Vietnam. Within months, the hippie/flower child movement will be given birth there, along with the new style of music that will provide the soundtrack for the tumultuous second half of the 1960s.
An uncanny number of rock music superstars will emerge from Laurel Canyon beginning in the mid-1960s and carrying through the decade of the 1970s.
No, he was there, believe it or not, to supply arms to Lumumba in defiance of the CIA.
Because, you know, that is the kind of thing that globetrotting ex-Marines did in those days (as well see soon enough when we take a look at another Laurel Canyon luminary).
