Many of these acts will be rather bizarre and somewhat obscure characters (think Captain Beefheart and Larry Wild Man Fischer), but some of them, such as psychedelic rocker cum shock-rocker Alice Cooper, will go on to superstardom.
Zappa, along with certain members of his sizable entourage (the Log Cabin was run as an early commune, with numerous hangers-on occupying various rooms in the main house and the guest house, as well as in the peculiar caves and tunnels lacing the grounds of the home; far from the quaint homestead the name seems to imply, by the way, the Log Cabin was a cavernous five-level home that featured a 2,000 square-foot living room with three massive chandeliers and an enormous floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace), will also be instrumental in introducing the look and attitude that will define the hippie counterculture (although the Zappa crew preferred the label Freak).
Given that Zappa was, by numerous accounts, a rigidly authoritarian control-freak and a supporter of U. military actions in Southeast Asia, it is perhaps not surprising that he would not feel a kinship with the youth movement that he helped nurture.
