Heads up! This is an older
version of Scott Parker's website, done by his pal RC (the same RC from
Mother People? Yes). This website only has a few books. At the
time of this update (1/17) the links below still work. Bad links
removed, this page only. Visit Scott's updated website at website at:
Check out Scott's
podcasts: In this one, he interviews Mike Keneally and others.
And somewhere within (at 2:12:30 to be more precise), Scott and Mike discuss
RC & Mother People, bootlegs, my meeting with Mike (pretty accurate account)
,,, and lots of other very cool stuff.

have a look at my work.

want to get ready and adjust the volume now.
In 2007 I
published my first two books. My first book, "HUNGRY FREAKS, DADDY the
Recordings of FRANK ZAPPA and The Mothers Of Invention Volume One 1959-1969", is
the first of what will be an eight-volume series documenting the recorded
documents of FZ from his earliest recordings (dating back to 1959) to his final
recorded work (in 1993) and beyond. The second volume in my Zappa series is
"Strictly Genteel", which covers the work of my personal American Idol from 1970
through the end of 1971. In 2008 I published a supplementary volume to the first
two books, featuring articles relevant to the Recordings Of Frank Zappa series
but not included in those books (mainly for space reasons). Volume three of the
books series, "Blessed Relief" (2009) has just been published and is
available to order now. Still deciding what's next, so as soon as I
figure it out, I'll let you know here. Stay tuned!
My books are self-financed and self-published (at least for now). This gives me
the ability to create a book that I would want to see rather than a compromised
book such as that which I would have with a major publisher.
This is what you would call a "utilitarian" site at the moment (I like that
term), but it will grow and develop over time.
Once again, WELCOME and thanks for stopping by!!

RC note: I might update my half of this book, The Mud Shark Saga, and put it
on my Mother People website. But will only put it there if I update
it, which I never seem to get around to doing, In the event that
happens, this printed book will still retain it's value, mostly becuase of
Scott's half of the book, which you can only get in this book.

During the 1980's, RC published 39
fanzine/collector's guides called Mother People. All issues, some
originals, some reprints are available atmotherpeople.com
The print in these issues, in most
cases is very small. I could read it all back then, but many older FZ
fans like myself will need a magnifying glass. I think someday Scott
might do authorized enlarged print volume, or maybe like a "best of" or
whatever ... Scott would keep you posted on that in the event it becomes a
