massimo bassoli

Massimo Bassoli is an Italian rock journalist who wrote a book about FZ, published in 1982, called "ZAPPA (E' PIU' DURO DI TUO MARITO)" (in English: "Zappa (harder than your husband)"). He provided the snarling Italian Words on Uncle Meat's Tengo Na Minchia Tanta - a bonus track on the '87 re-release - and appeared in Uncle Meat (The Film). Bassoli can also be heard on You Can't Do That On Stage Anymore Vol. 3, and seen in The Dub Room Special performing Tengo Na Minchia Tanta.

Massimo also is one of the main figures in the "Frank Zappa - Summer '82 - When Zappa Came To Sicily" documentary.

random notes

     From: Lumpy Gravy (
he's massimo bassoli, a man who met zappa during an italian tour in the early 80's. as a singer he surely is not famous at all (he's not a singer) anyway, he's the director of Metal Shock, an italian magazine dealing with metal. you seem italian, you should know it.

Massimo Bassoli was the guy who growled all these nasty :-) italian words on Uncle Meat Tengo Na Minchia Tanta.

       tengo na minchia tanta, tengo na minchia accussi'
       devi usare un pollo, devi usare un pollo

Massimo Bassoli is an Italian rock journalist. He is the editor of the rock magazine "TUTTIFRUTTI" published monthly, and before that he was the editor of another magazine called "ROCKSTAR". Both magazines are a kind of fashion thing mainly devoted to the USA and UK majors' music with some Italian stuff certainly not the best to my taste. He also wrote a book about FZ, published in 1982, called "ZAPPA (E' PIU' DURO DI TUO MARITO)" (in English: "Zappa (harder than your husband)"). Fortunately this book is mainly a lyrics and interviews thing with a few personal opinions at the beginning. I don't like very much this book but you must know that the only book about uncle Frank I like is THE REAL ONE!

"Last friday 16th Dweezil Zappa, Frank's son, played Naples, Italy. I was there and he invited me on stage to sing Tengo Na Minchia Tanta. I did it. 28 years later with his fantastic son, it was extreme, really too much for me. Thanks Dweezil, to be you, to be such a great artist, to be such a great guitarist, to be such a great son! I love you. Massimo"
