Early Fan Mail? -OR- Necessity

These Mothers is crazy. You can tell by their clothes. One guy wears beads and they all smell bad. We were gonna get them for a dance after the basketball game but my best pal warned me you can never tell how many will show up...sometimes the guy in the fur coat doesn't show up and sometimes he does show up only he brings a big bunch of crazy people with him and they dance all over the place. None of the kids at my school like these Mothers...specially since my teacher told us what the words to their songs meant.

Sincerely forever,
Suzy Creamcheese
Salt Lake City, Utah.

FZ penned the above for the back cover of the "Freak Out" album giving birth to a recurring character that he wove into both his stage act and subsequent albums. He gave Suzy life. Nourished, supported and promoted her "career". Suzy was an idea. A plaything, a stage prop, a fictional character. There are three or four known women who filled the SC role and suspect thousands who helped feed and inspire the anecdotal amalgam of MOI and FZ's roadies.
