ZAPPA HAS A FEW WORDS FOR CZECHS

Rock musician Frank Zappa, whose recordings include many cynical comments on American consumerism, carried a similar outlook to this former Communist capital.

Asked by Czechoslovak television what he thought of communism after the dramatic democratic changes that have occurred in much of Eastern Europe, Zappa replied with acid brevity -- "The same."

Zappa on Monday met a fellow maverick, Vaclav Havel, the formerly banned playwright who became president of Czechoslovakia last month.

Zappa, who has a cult following in Czechoslovakia, arrived Sunday at the invitation of Michael Kocab, a rock musician and member of Parliament.
