Hiya, how about more in-depth coverage of Don’s meetings with Ornette Coleman, and his relationship with Frank Zappa? Thank you!
Coleman is a mystery to me. I wasn’t there, nor was I really interested in meeting him. If it would have been Coltrane, I would have camped out on his door, but I never cared that much for Coleman. Bill’s book gives the most information any band member would probably have on that subject. I do, however, explore in as much depth as possible the relationship between Frank and Don.
