Cool!
Bob sure looks familiar...

Tip for viewers: don't turn up the volume to try to understand the banter at the start.

actually, it's frank's brother carl...you know, the one with the gym socks. :wink: jason's a skinny guy, who looks slightly (if ya squint) like a teenage frank. though jason is far from teen town. very nice, sounds like early mother's music......

Carl Zappa can also be seen as "Young Minnesota Tishman" in the Uncle Meat movie in the famous "I'm using the chicken to measure it" scene.

Left to right: Aynsley Dunbar, Carl Zappa and Ray Collins.

Wow, I haven't seen Bill Harris in ages (I used to watch his show on cable in the early/mid '80s all the time). He looks terrific!

"Bill Harris in Hollywood - weeeee'll talk again!"

I really enjoyed the film...absolutely perfect editing. Watched it a few times already. Well, these guys sure as shit can play. SJZ has his Uncle's talent for making difficult music sound lovely. There is an album available through cdbaby.com, called VISIONS. Highly recommended.

Dweezil should hire the kid for ZPZ. It would add a whole new dimension to everything.

Well, originally Ahmet was supposed to be involved. Who knows maybe in the future?!
I would say it's a good bet we will see that eventually. :wink:
