NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #287 ~ 10-23-21]

Pictured: Jeff Simmons.

Jeff Simmons had a major role [in the film 200 Motels], but at the first script run-through at the Kensington Palace Hotel on 18 January his girlfriend persuaded him that he really should be an important blues player and not fool around with a comedy band. (Even this conversation was taped by Zappa, who released it on Playground Psychotics in 1992.) Jim Pons, the bass player with the Turtles, was flown over to replace him in the group. Wilfred Bramble – who played Paul McCartney’s grandfather in A Hard Day’s Night (1964) – was hired as a replacement for the acting role. After a week, on the last day of rehearsals, he found the obscenities he was required to utter and the general chaos too much, and suddenly ran screaming through the sound stage and never came back.

— Barry Miles, Frank Zappa.
