Suzy Creamcheese

"Suzy Creamcheese" is an archetypal name that has grown into the Frank Zappa music culture, first coined on the back cover of Zappa's "Freak Out!" album in the speech bubble "Suzy Creamcheese, What's Got Into You?". Her 'groupie' letter, sent from her hometown of Salt Lake City, Utah, is also 'lovingly' included on the cover.

The role of Suzy Creamcheese was played by Jeannie Vassoir on "Freak Out!".

The role of Suzy Creamcheese was played by Pamela Zarubica on the later Zappa releases "We're Only In It For The Money" and "Uncle Meat". Zarubica introduced Gail Sloatman to Frank Zappa in 1966. She is also the "Pam" mentioned in John Mayall's recording "2401". A song about a 'day in the life' of activities Mayall witnessed during a stay in Zappa's Log Cabin address at 2401 Laurel Canyon Blvd. Zarubica lived at 8404 Kirkwood Drive, Laurel Canyon.

The role of Suzy Creamcheese was played by Lisa Cohen on "Absolutely Free". She is the daughter of Zappa's manager at the time, Herb Cohen.

In the UK, during the "Summer of Love", visiting L.A. resident Susan Ziegler (daughter of the owner of Los Angeles venues in which the M.O.I. performed) was often mistakenly cited by the music press as "Suzy Creamcheese".

A boutique called "Suzy Creamcheese" existed in Las Vegas in the 1970s, also referred to in the film "Casino" [Scorsese].

Suzy Creamcheese dialog from "The Return Of The Son Of Monster Magnet" was used by the San Jose band Teddy And His Patches on their 1967 Chance label release "Suzy Creamcheese".
