Survival and Son made it to Chico last night for the Dweezil show, Roxy and Elsewhere. They tore it up. Count me as another convert to Dweezil's ability to pull off his father's work with the same chutzpah and deadpan delivery.
Great show!

My weird neighbor lent me a bad quality mix tape of Zappa. I couldn't return it for a while because he was in jail for beating off on a public bus. I returned the mix tape awkwardly after his release. Didn't ever get into that Zappa.

A recording of one of the most unorthodox performances in the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s history — a 2013 rendition of the orchestral suites from Frank Zappa’s “200 Motels” — will be released Nov. 20.

Esa-Pekka Salonen conducted the concert, “200 Motels: The Suites,” to celebrate Walt Disney Concert Hall's 10th birthday. It will be available as a two-CD set or as downloads from the Zappa Records/UMe label.

“200 Motels: The Suites” is the 101st album of the late Zappa’s career, according to his son Ahmet. It's also the last prepared by Gail Zappa, the composer’s widow, who died Oct. 7 at age 70.

Most folks do not realize it, but Frank Zappa invented the selfie well before it ever existed.

What flavour of gum did he prefer? Check back in later.

I consider Zappa to be similar to Dylan in that they both recorded a lot of throw away material but the good stuff will never be bested. Frank was a genius

Just saw Dweezil at Red Rocks last month. Fantastic show, I REALLY like the medleys he's been perfecting since the 90's. He'll play 10-20 seconds of like 40-50 classic songs, no sheets, no notes, amazing and way fun!

He also does a formidable job of playing his Dad's music as well. Too bad the 4 Zappa kids are all at eachothers throats about Franks musical rights and royalties..

Then along came Jones
Emptied the trash
Everybody went down
To that million dollar bash
Ooh, baby, ooh-ee
