Forgive me but I don't follow the reference. What's that?


Those are the first words to Dweezil's song Love Ride, album opener to Go With What You Know. Intro is OK but the rest is fairly lethal.
My sister was, like me, caught at his very good concert in Amsterdam in 2010, and she wanted to hear more so I put GWWYK on her MP3. She can't edit the playlist on her computer. When she came back to visit us she begged me to pull that song off and spent over an hour nagging at me how bad she thought it was.


I feel her pain. That is a pretty awful song.

Ahhh.... thanks for catching me up BBP! I'm fairly familiar with DZ's career up through Automatic and then I pretty much stopped so I wasn't aware of that tune. Again, thanks for the explanation! :lol:

Maroual that's a very bad sign. You may suffer a type of noise-induced hearing loss. Consider checking your doctor.

Well, thanks for caring but I just feel uncomfortable over 80 dB and experience a slight pain over 100 dB.
I do not think this is linked to an abnormal condition, it is just aging.
As the volume in concert halls often exceeds 105 dB, I try to protect my ears as much as possible from any damages and tinnitus.

I think that sums up it pretty good. we should let dweezil do whatever he wants to do.
he's keeping his dad's music, and heritage, alive.

That sums it up as far as being an interpretive artist. Some folks think that he may have more to offer creatively. Time will tell.

The Dweeze has grown as a guitarist by huge leaps and bounds.But, imo, he's never really written any great material of his own. Wouldn't it be cool if he discovered a latent, late developed gene for composing?

To anyone who's ordered, does the $24.95 include shipping, or do you have to add s&h (and tax to NY) for this? I threw it in the cart, but have to create an account before going any further.

Thanks in advance.

Mine had $6.50 shipping for a total of $31.45. No sales tax on my order from here in Ohio.

So some posters here take issue with Dweezil sounding "too much like Frank."

Let me get this straight....there's an issue with the lead guitarist in a band called Zappa Plays Zappa sounding like Frank Zappa?
