George Duke is no skinny minnie either. Sorry to get off topic here but here's my all-portly Zappa band.

Bass-Roy Estrada
Keys-George Duke, Tommy Mars ('81 version)
Guitar-Ike Willis, Ray White, Mike Keneally
Vocals-Flo & Eddie (especially Mark)
Horns-Albert Wing (and odds are somebody in the Wazoo Band was packing a few extra pounds).

Dang, all the drummers were skinny. Maybe Chester? I don't know if this makes me a true fan or just an idiot.


Billy Mundi was quite portly.

You get chills down your spine and feel proud whenever the satellite radio deep tracks station plays any FZ song...even when you're alone.

You sing "Let's Make The Water Turn Black" to yourself for an hour while you rake the leaves.

You obsessively listen over and over again to the instrumental break in Wet T-Shirt Nite just because it's so damn cool.

Hey, Ike is my friend now. He's probably just been real busy doing Ike stuff. I'm sure my cd's will be in my mailbox any day now. :cry:

When you deface magazines at the dentist office you subconsciously put zappa stashes on all the models male or female.

You try to get your bands drummer to play Aynsley Dunbar's sweet drum fill before FZ's solo in Road Ladies. My drummer just rolls his eyes and continues walking in the petrified forest of boom boom bap

That is a sweet feel [aha, edit, i mean, fill...] indeed, prior to the solo... A proof a drummer don't have to be Colaiuta to be cool...

When you have two stacks of CDs, each close to as tall as yourself. One stack is "Zappa" and the other stack is "other." :shock:
