Frank Zappa

Hot Rats! Deceased rock and roll pervert, part-time classical composer, father of Moon Unit and all round creative genius Frank Vincent Zappa (1940-1993) has had his head immortalised in brass and stuck on a stainless steel pole in a lacklustre courtyard just west of Old Town. Commissioned by a student and created by the late sculptor Konstantinas Bogdanas (1926-2011) who once churned out Lenins and other noteworthy comrades for the bureaucrats in Moscow, the statue is notable as being the first monument of the man to be erected anywhere in the world. If you’re now wondering what the connection between Lithuania and Frank Zappa is, don’t. There isn’t one.
