Playboy: Sometimes you sound like a political candidate. How serious was your plan to run for president?
Frank Zappa: I wanted to do it. It’s a bit hard to mount a campaign if you have cancer and don’t feel well.
Playboy: If you hadn’t been ill, would you have run?
Frank Zappa: Yeah. And it’s a shame. We got calls and mail throughout the election. Squadrons of volunteers called.
I would have voted for ya, Frank.
