well it is a few months old. came out in august.
here is a song from it called funky 15



the cd is honestly not very good but funky 15 is nice
im a huge frank zappa fan. like a super fan. saw dweezil play on the zappa plays zappa 3 times.
he is a monster guitarist.
not so much with this song but you can definitely here the influence of his father. i can hear it in this song but i know all franks # by heart. there are other tracks on this cd that sound more like frank.

he does a fantastic job of realizing franks music live but its sad to say that when it comes to original compositions he just never quite gets there imo.
there is a track on the cd called malkovich where john malkovich reads plato over dweezil playing.

I'm a huge Zappa fan. I'm listening to 'Burnt Weenie Sandwich' at the moment.
Dweezil is a talented musician, but he is no comparison to the old man in compositional skills.
I don't think anyone ever will be.

i think youre right.
zappa had the magic ear.
his was a musical mind to the likes we will never see again.

this is not really a song but its awesome. where my name came from.
its from 69



we should use this thread to talk frank. i dont get to talk about him much with like minded people.
i have been a fan for about 20 years and i still cant get enough and i still listen to frank every day.
there is so much material out there.
i love all the live stuff.
zappateers is a gold mind for live material.

my favorite song of his is the gumbo variations.
he was decades ahead of his time. most people just dont get his music i suppose. the lyrics. the odd time signatures. things like that though are what i love about it.
moe n herbs vacation.....

dweezil does have the art of playing his fathers stuff down though.

can you imagine the kind of # frank could have pumped out with tech like pro tools?
he was giving us pearls when he was using reel to reel editing tape with a razor and programming a synclavier

have you seen this salad party?
it was right before frank died. he had a little shindig and he sampled a bunch of people
the chieftans were there. tuvan throat singers.
johnny guitar watson was there.

this was of course in the UMRK
