[business,music,quote] How they did job interviews in the good ol' days

Ian Underwood: My name is Ian Underwood and I'm the straight member of the group.

Unknown groupie: Wowie-zowie!

Ian Underwood: One month ago I heard The Mothers of Invention at the theater. I heard them on two occasions and on the second occasion I went up to Jim Black, and I said, I like your music, and I'd like to come down and play with you. Two days later I came up to the recording session and Frank Zappa was sitting in the control room. I walked up and said, how do you do, my name is Ian Underwood and I like your music and I'd like to play with your group. Frank Zappa said, what can you do that's fantastic? I said, I can play alto saxophone and piano. He said, all right, whip it out!
