This is my favorite rooster/line-up for The Mothers, what a talented group but legend says Frank thought they were boring and wrote "Po-jama People" about them specifically.

"I have had bands where everyone has been a reader. The most boring band I had was like that and ultimately led to the song 'Po-jama People'... engaging in intellectual, juiceless pursuits. I like to have guys on the bus who want to go out there and get laid."
"I think the overall impact of THAT group would be that it was between pseudo-jazette and cranial. And the people who were in the band at that time - with a couple of exceptions - were genuinely boring people. I mean, I don't appreciate a band that likes to play chess in their off-stage hours. If you have to spend a lot of time with people who are interested in their chess boards and little card games and shit like that, it can drive you nuts."
