Frank Zappa Wins Gross-Out Contest – Gruesome Rock Legends

Frank Zappa was so eccentric, maybe it was easy for fans to believe strange things about the musician. One of the Top 10 Gruesome Classic Rock Legends says that Zappa once won a gross-out contest on stage (some say with Alice Cooper) after his opponent defecated on stage — after which Zappa ate the result. Another variation is that Zappa won by defecating on stage, but as he wrote in his autobiography, “For the record, folks: I never took a s— onstage, and the closest I ever came to eating sh-t anywhere was at a Holiday Inn buffet in Fayetteville, North Carolina in 1973.”
