Zappa Plays Zappa

Saw Zappa Plays Zappa Saturday night at the Warfield in San Francisco with Chucko, Nick and a bunch of others.  (No photo, sorry.)  Absolutely wonderful show.  This is Dweezil Zappa performing Frank's music with a band that inludes some folks from FZ's bands as well as some new musicians.

There are a few very good descriptions of the show, including setlist, in the Zappa Plays Zappa Reviews section of the Kill Ugly Radio web page (which itself is pretty cool).

It was a very touching show; you could feel the love of FZ and the appreciation for his accomplisments throughout.  This was the last show of the tour, Dweezil mentioned that the tour was very successful and that they were planning another one in the fall.

Napolean Murphy Brock was great.  And I was completely blown away by the new alto sax player Sheila Gonzalez.  And of course Dweezil.

Also, Dweezil talks about Frank's SG guitar and playing some of the impossible parts in a bunch of video clips at GuitarPlayerTV.com.  And there's a good interview with Dweezil on the Gibson guitar site.
