Sometime in the late 80's, early 90's, I shot a piece for MTV, with Dweezil, Ahmet and Moon Unit, and Frank. We boarded a train in NY and shot the kids all the way to Washington DC. In the nation's capitol, we hooked up with Frank for a concert at, I believe, the National Theater. I was amazed by Franks kids. They're all amazingly smart and talented. At one point, we hooked up Dweezil, directly to the sound input of the Betacam and followed him with the camera as he walked through the train cars, seranading the passengers.
When we got to DC and got back stage so the family was together, it was quite a sight and a lot of fun. It's a very dynamic family and Frank, a very cool Dad.
If my memory is correct (and many chemicals say otherwise), after the shoot, Dweezil went on Howard Stern and said something about MTV. The next thing I heard about the piece was that MTV pulled it and it never aired. It might have been seen in Europe. If anyone has seen or (OMG) has copy of this, please let me know. MY days in TV are long over with, but it would be nice to think I left something behind.
Thank you all and thank you FZ, DZ, MZ and AZ. The new DVD/CD Rocks!

after playing 2/6 in NY, they then played 2/8,9,10 in Washington, DC at WARNER Theater . . .

I've yet to find documentation out here of any video surfacing, even taped on vhs, yet . . .
