Dweezil Zappa At Ft. Lewis
On his birth certificate, musician is listed under religion. His father was a gifted guitar
virtuoso with an outlandish sense of humor. His teacher was Steve Vai. Oh yeah, he is also
a fretboard whiz. It can only be Dweezil Zappa. Dweezil’s odd name has not been a barrier.
If anything, it has helped him establish a unique identity. Perhaps that is what Frank had in mind for his progeny.
So, what do you do when your father is a famous singer-songwriter, electric six-string
maestro, and all around legendary rock star? Dweezil Zappa’s answer was to go out and became a great guitar player in his own right. DZ’s first album, 1986’s Having a Bad Day, sounds like just what it is, a throwback to the ’80s. In order to get a good dose of Dweezil,
try his 1988 release, My Guitar Wants to Kill Your Mother.
Most impressive is Dweezil’s ongoing “Zappa Plays Zappa” project, referred to as just
ZPZ, performing the music of Frank Zappa. Dweez has it covered, right down to the sound
that his dad used. He cannot help it; jamming is in his blood.
Dweezil is a chip right off the old Zappa block! Don’t miss this one!
