Went to see Dweezil play his dads music last night at the Roseland. The best concert I've ever seen. Napoleon Murphy Brock played and sang the entire concert. Bozio made an appearance on drums. And the little Italian Virtuoso Steve Vai came on and played as well. It lasted about 4hrs with two encores.

Dweezil had this weird expression on his face the entire time. It wasn't weird as in bad but this extremly calm... pleased look.

As usual I got stuck next to the drunk pot smokers. No joke this one guy was so high he was making animal noises.

Anyway, it'll be out on DVD on account of them filming it. Buy it and you'll see what I mean about Dweezil's expression.

I saw Dweezil give what was called a demo of the Peavey Wiggy when it came out. In reality it was more of a clinic on achieving tone and the application of combining playing style and tone to create a specific overall "sound."

It was an impressive display.

I saw the show at the Beacon in NYC last June. Dweezel is more musical than his dad, but doesn't have the stage presence that FZ did. That aside, I thought that it was the best concert that I've seen in a long, long time. I have a bootleg CD of the show, but I'd really like the see a DVD.

I'm glad that Dweezel is preserving the Zappa concert experience. The set of songs was exceptional. For a long time Zappa fan like myself, it was amazing.

VIVA ZAPPA!
