I’m going to the Wiltern Theater tonight to see Zappa Plays Zappa, in which son Dweezil assembles a band to pay tribute to the musical legacy of his brilliant father, Frank. In case there’s a ticket or two left and you’re a Zappa fan who’s let an awful lot of years pass since last hearing his music live, here’s an article from Thursday’s Los Angeles Times that will tell you everything you need to know about Dweezil’s methods and motivations, and a review from last week’s New York Times of the actual show.
And if you can’t go, but all this Zappa talk has got you wanting to hear a little “Cosmic Debris,” just press play:
And here’s Frank Zappa on CNN’s Crossfire I would have voted for Frank Zappa for president.
TLRHB, I’ll be thinking of you and our porevious close calls with FZ tonight. And I’ll definitely let you know how it goes!
