Yo Cats,

Does Frank make a big screen appearance behind Dweezil on the ZPZ DVD (like on the cover)? 8)

And if he does, how did they get the camera to register it? And does it look good?

No, he doesn't, unfortunately.

I forgot all about that. Wonder if the big screen Frank is to make an appearance this year?

It didn't in Omaha, but I don't think there would have been room for it.

:lol: Just bought ZPZ DVD & am very, very happy with it! Cried my eyes out to most of it. 'specially when Dweezil said thanks to the crowd. Dweezil, I'm very proud of you for the commitment to your Fathers work & the path you've chosen to keep the Zappa tradition alive! Your Father IS very proud of you! (That is if you believe in that sort of stuff. And if you don't, that's okay too!)

actually, i went to the ZPZ concert in Providence Nov '07 and the band played back-up to Frank who was playing on a screen. It was absolutely amazing. It was a solo from Chunga's Revenge which i have not seen before (so it doesnt exist on any DVD's that are available). Frank also traded off some solos with the live '07 Dweezil. It was flawless and one of the most amazing things i have ever seen. Apparently this does not happen at every concert, so i imagine it must depend on the venue. 8)

They had the screen here in L.A. too. It was fucking great! To hear THAT music played in a venue with that volume PLUS a big screen Frank... Truly wonderful. I never got to see FZ live so to hear it all in this context was so cool. Anyway, the big screen appearance looked like it was from the TTNS N.Y. Halloween show but I may be very, very wrong. Or very, very right. That's right!!!

Either way, it would be great if they could incorporate more FZ footage into the show. The father/son exchange was touching AND cool.

I agree only to an extent. It is more effective when you see it less often. Having a live band backing up a projection of Frank would get a little cheesy if donbe to overkill. 2 or 3 tunes in a 2 1/2 hour set is just right and also depends on the tune. No one can replicate Dumb All Over, for instance.
