No, Suzy Creamcheese does not exist??

At the start of the 1960s, Suzy Zeiger, nicknamed Suzy Creamcheese,was a extra part of the performance of Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention. As a matter of fact, they performed in the Royal Albert Hall, in London, while Suzy stayed there. She was in the crowd,first row, during a performance she shouted to Frank. A conversation the same or much like the one below then took place between them, with a huge audience overhearing them.

Suzy Creamcheese, is you is ?


FZ: Suzy?
Suzy: Yes?
FZ: Suzy Creamcheese?
Suzy: Yes?
FZ: This is the voice of your conscience baby... uh, I just want to check one thing out with you... you don't mind, do ya?
Suzy: What?
FZ: Suzy Creamcheese, honey, what's got into ya?




After Suzy Zeiger left the group she continued to use the name "Suzy Creamcheese".
In next years some other young ladies used the name "Suzy Creamcheese" in Mothers' performances. Eventually, it was extensively believed that she had always been a fictitious figure. On the album Freak Out! (which advantages a "letter" from Suzy Creamcheese on the backside cover), Suzy Creamcheese was presented by Jeannie Vassoir; on Absolutely Free and Mothermania this was Herb Cohen's daughter Lisa; and on We're Only in It for the Money and Uncle Meat it was Pamela Zarubica.





Frank Zappa interview from 1974:
"Suzy Creamcheese was a girl named Jeanne Vassoir. And she is the voice that's on the Freak Out album. The myth of Suzy Creamcheese, the letter on the album, I wrote myself. There never really was a Suzy Creamcheese. It was just a figment of my imagination until people started identifying with it heavily. It got to weird proportions in Europe, so that in 1967, when we did our first tour of Europe, people were asking if Suzy Creamcheese was along with us. So I procured the services of another girl named Pamela Zarubica, who was hired to be the Suzy Creamcheese of the European tour. And then she maintained the reputation of being Suzy Creamcheese after 1967. The first one went someplace, we don't know where."
