Zappa, The Monkees, and Dr. John
Zappa's path crossed the paths of many others, just because of being located in the Los Angeles area. I couldn't find any accounts of a relationship between Zappa and Dr John other than they played some of the same festivals and The Mothers did a song called Wino Man (with Dr John Routine), but Dr. John was one of the musicians creating music for the Monkees TV show as part of The Wrecking Crew, so I'm pretty sure they met.
Frank had some fun with The Soul of The Monkees.
