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.

Turn up the volume and bask in the Frankness of guitar virtuosity

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
Ooh, baby, ooh-ee
It's that million dollar bash.

Dweezil and company played yet another fantastic show in Seattle on Wednesday marking 50 years of Frank Zappa music starting with Freak Out, his outrageous double debut album. Lots of songs from that classic offering were savored by all.

Scott,
Once again you display your impeccable taste in music. I always loved "Burnt Weeny Sandwich" and "Hot Rats". My friend John Ferguson played Peaches en regalia as his wedding march - always thought THAT was cool!

One of the reasons I like to hang out here is all the Zappa freaks. My first exposure to Frank was Muffin Man with Beefheart. Fast forward 30 years with my kids being way into music, it just seemed like many of the younger teachers had seen Zappa audition sheets. These things just circulated the various colleges. Anyway, a couple of interviews some of you might enjoy when you have the time.

I saw George Duke play in Seattle just before he passed on. I complemented him on his sweet voice and asked him about playing with Dweezil. He said "Yeh we had to practice man" like it was something he hadn't done in decades. George and Napoleon Murphy Brock together was the height of vocal excellence in Frank's music IMO. One Size Fits All says it perfectly. I asked Dweezil after a show which of Frank's songs gave him the most pleasure to play and after a moments thought he replied "Inca Roads".

A bit later on...

She took George's watch
Like they always do
(It was a Timex, too!)
No more money, boy
I shoulda knew
The way she do me, boy
She might do you, too
Advance romance
People I am through!

It was the summer of '81. Russ McLean (general contractor), TM Herbert (carpenter, sort of), Dave Fields (man of all trades, RIP), and I (apprentice rock washer and nail bender) were building a custom home in Bishop. We survived two consecutive weeks of 100+ degree temperatures in July and completed the project only with the help of Zappa's Joe's Garage blaring from Dave Field's portable record player 7am to 5pm daily throughout the summer.
