So, I've gotta ask, why NOT? <br><br>  There are ALOT of live music DVDs now from many older groups with good film footage dating from the '60s but none so far of all FZs MANY concerts over many years. I'm sure that most were filmed too.<br>   Yes, I have the Halloween DVD but honestly that disappointed me. <br>  I see talk here of a Roxy DVD (would be cool, hopefully) but I'd think that by now there'd be several truely great DVDs of FZs live concerts.<br>   Any hope that someday that might happen?

Are the other two worthwhile and showing live footage?

......ordered. Thanks :)<br><br>   I'm still hoping to see more someday afterall, there was so much music over so many years, so many different bands, etc and I hope that it's all on film somewhere and to be released for his fans.

BBSNX is well worth purchasing! You won't be dissapointed Evil...DHBIM, personally I liked, but I found that a lot of peeps didn't like it much.  ;D

I'd like to see his TV concerts compiled on DVD.  Maybe all his SNL appearances (with Samarai) and other TV appearances.  Throw in some interview clips from Arsenio and Letterman and I'd be set.  There's some good stuff there that is hard to find.

Finally had the freetime to watch all of both Baby Snakes and  <br> Does Humor Belong in Music, and I like them.<br><br>   Considering all the years and many different people he played with, it's too bad that more concert footage wasn't filmed.<br><br>

Lots was, just not professionaly shot with multiple cameras.  Who knows what we'll get in the future.  I would like to see the video get priority in the near future.

Baby Snakes is so awesome.   thoroughly.<br>Favorite moment, Tommy Mars' solo.  Just the look on his face cracks me up and makes me so happy at the sametime.  <br>What a goofy mofo.
