Saarbrücken, Germany, September, 1978: Frank Zappa entertains the crowd during his 1978 European tour. In an interview, the future Rock and Roll Hall of Famer complained of "corporations that make the difference in terms of distribution and financing for new artistic events, where these decisions are being made by committees of accountants." He also offered the opinion that "the committee is going to be one of the great retarding factors in the advancement of civilization."
