Frank Zappa

Freak out! Deceased rock and roll pervert, part-time classical composer, father of Moon Unit and all round creative genius Frank Vincent Zappa (1940-93) has had his head immortalised in brass and stuck on a steel pole in a lacklustre courtyard just west of the Old Town. Commissioned by a student and created by sculptor Konstantinas Bogdanas (1926-2011), who once churned out Lenins and other comrades for the bureaucrats in Moscow, the bust is the first monument to the man to be erected anywhere in the world. As Zappa once said, "Without deviation, progress is impossible." If you’re wondering what the link is between Vilnius and Frank Zappa, don’t. There isn’t one.
