This sounds EXACTLY like a question I would ask. 8)<br><br>On the "Halloween" DVD-A there is a video clip of the band performing Suicide Chump and I'm pretty sure it's Vinnie, but I don't think they ever actually show him (can't remember).<br><br>Vinnie and the band do a great "call and response" kinda thingy with John Belushi as the Samauri on Rollo on the SNL thing.<br><br>I've never seen that Circus program.   :(<br><br>VCF

I have looked up some reviews of the Halloween DVD and they all show Vinnie as the drummer for the whole thing. Yet the replies I have received suggest he is only on there for two tracks. <br><br>for example here:<br>http://www.bbc.co.uk/music/classicpop/reviews/frankzappa_halloween.shtml<br><br>and here:<br>http://www.audiorevolution.com/music/revs/frankzappa.shtml<br><br>Thanks to everyone for the replies.

[quote author=Sebastiaan link=board=tv-film;num=1102326468;start=0#5 date=12/07/04 at 01:27:58]For more Vinnie on film check ... 'We don't mess around'. Great stuff!  <br>[/quote]<br><br>Especially "Seal-Call Fusion Music" and "Dead Air/I'm on Duty". ;D "We Don't Mess Around" was actually a rehearsal for a show that a German TV station taped. The audio was also released as parts of the Beat the Boots release "At the Circus". All-in-all, it's a must have, especially if you want to see Frank playing the accordion. ;D<br>
