Freak Out my Life with Frank Zappa by Pauline Butcher
Pauline & Frank
The log cabin where she lived for a while
Frank with his wife
Freak Out! is exactly what Pauline Butcher did not do when she arrived to take dictation at Frank Zappa’s London hotel room in her Biba outfit and straightened hair in 1967. This chance meeting resulted in her becoming Frank Zappa’s live in secretary in California. She tells the tale of her time at The Ranch with Frank Zappa, his wife Gail, the Mothers, the GTO’s (Girls Together Outrageously) and various other hangers on like Suzie Creamcheese.
