[QUOTE=badpenguin;n32521323]Phil, I stole that line from Zappa, Wet T shirt night if I remember correctly. And wouldn't know a U87, from a U boat.[/QUOTE]
Big Zappa fan here... the line you’re referring to is “looks just like a Telefunken U47.”
And Neumann actually DID make U47’s for Telefunken. :)
To make matters even more confusing, U-47 was also a famous WWII era U-boat that snuck into Scapa Flow and sank the British battleship Royal Oak very early in WWII.
Those factoids, plus five bucks, will get you a cup of coffee at Starbucks... ;)
