I can only think of 50-50 and Zombie-Woof.
No wonder he's dead, squawking like that.

And he's alumni, I just focused on the subject.

I'd like to see Mac Rebenak (Dr. John) take another
shot.

This is not exactly the tale about his audition but has something to do with it. Nevertheless, this is a very odd testmony...

I spoke to Ice-T on Twitter and he said that he's a Zappa fan. He mentioned Willie the Pimp and Dirty Love.

I have to wonder if he is a Zappa fan. He likes Slayer, Sabbath, Zeppelin, Hendrix, etc. Who knows?

Esham doing the Rap on Dumb All Over


YES. He would be perfect for those lyrics. Esham is one of my favorite rappers out there - his 'acid rap' fusion of hip hop and heavy metal is a hell of a lot better than anything by Fred Durst and Limp Bizkit. I always said that "Dumb All Over" would make a good rapcore song. 8)

Jeff Beck - St. Etienne

I got the crystal ball..............

A full year before the embankment
this ever positive forum member
boldly pooted forth
with his icing anointment utensil.

Now if Trendmonger's 17 Mar 2008 00:06 Cosmic Debris that is quoted above
is not good enough for any given cretin lurking in the corners
well groove with your bad self to your own Imaginary Disease.

And there was absolutely zero inside information on this one last year.
Just a natural speculative desire to see Jeff Beck with ZPZ.
Enjoy the show folks.

Hello Everyone,

Starting next week tickets will become available for our April 17th show in Los Angeles. We will be opening for Jeff Beck!

You may or may not know this but Frank and Jeff were friends and played together for fun on a few occasions.
They discussed making a record together. I would have loved to have heard that.

See you in LA.

DZ
