Nice! My brother tried to get me to sign on for The Who but I had to draw the line somewhere. Saw them with Entwistle so I decided to pass.
System of a Down and Peter Gabriel coming up soon though! (not together - haha)

Lucky you saw them with Entwhistle!! And I love Peter Gabriel too!! :mrgreen:

Well, if you haven't seen Gabriel live, he's worth every penny!

Last night met PIB at a local pub northwest of Chicago and Found this to be a small world..
I had learned recently that my guitar teacher plays in PIB's band and unfortunately was out of town seeing DZPZ when they played.. but vow to see them at their next show.
Haven't been around here lately and need to catch up a bit but PIB and I talked of all things Zappa at the bar.
We were there because it was my guitar teachers girlfriend supprise birthday party and Mario(the teacher) surprised us all by asking her to marry him!
She said yes.. so Atta boy Mario...She's Beautiful by the way and glad he didn't let that one get away!

Back to the topic..
Saw DZPZ twice last month and just saw Dennis DeYouing last week..DZPZ was still amazing despite the line up change and DeYoung has still got it!

Nice to meet you PIB.. See you soon at Martyrs!

I have been lucky enough to be shooting the DZPZ concerts the past years... Here is my latest photo's from the Merrlliville concert.

Great conversation indeed! I'm sure we could talk each others' ears off with a whole 'nuther night of Zappaspeak. :mrgreen:

Cheers!

I'm going to go see Ike Willis play with an unnamed tribute band in a town that I may or may not live in 6 wks. I actually know a couple guys who are in the band - didn't know they were Zappa guys until very recently. Why so secretive? I don't think it matters legally - but why risk shit from unnamed type folks who shall continue to be unnamed.

I'm also now officially going to see The Monkees! :D Davy will be missed, but I'm sure the remaining three will give him a good tribute.

You'll be seeing 2 Monkees not three.Mike Nesmith hasn't been a part of any Monkee business since his contract to act like a Monkee expired back in the '60s.

A few decent shows coming up in my area that I would like to go to (ZZ Top, Steve Vai, etc) but what I really have on my radar is Los Straitjackets in September. I just love these guys. Surf music done right with a great gimmick and stage show.

Also Ike Willis is actually going to be playing in my town in September with a local tribute band so I have to check that out. Plus Buckethead in my town too.

Let me know when Ike's gonna play up there.

On topic I saw The GrandMothers of Invention.NMB is still the best frontman ever and for almost being *80yrs.old Don Preston can play those keyboards like no one else!

*80 in Sept. :wink:

I'm surprised NMB is almost 80. I assumed he was much younger than Frank and that he would be in his early '60's now. I tried finding a birthdate for NMB on the web but couldn't find any.

My guess is Nappy's about 68. I remember hearing that he was 60yo on the first ZPZ tour.

See this is why I'm so excited! Mike is my favorite member of the band! :mrgreen:

Saw System of a Down last night and, while it's not my most often listened to genre, I would say that this was the best metal show I ever attended! W-o-W!
I know many of you will lambast me for saying so but, in my opinion, they are the closest thing to Zappa that metal ever provided. :mrgreen:
.... and, in that context, it certainly depends on which song you hear. Some FZ-influenced tracks are: Bounce, Chic 'n' Stu, Radio/Video, Psycho, Fuck the System, I-E-A-I-A-I-O, Cigaro, Violent Pornography, Vicinity of Obscenity.
Alright, I'll shut up now. :wink:

I hear a lot of Zappa influence in all genres of music these days.Whether they know or not is another matter,but most younger musicians at least know who he is and respect his music and influence.I never heard any Vanilla Fudge recordings until FZ mentioned them on FE.Then I went and listened to a friends record.So Frank turned me on to *Heavy Metal* in his own cooly twisted way.That was way back when Deep Purple/Led Zepplin,etc.,where just more rock groups and not a sub-genre of rock that's now called heavy metal. 8)

Saw the Mike Dillon Band the other night. Ridiculous, so fucking good. First time seeing his solo band. He's always been great w/ Claypool, and in projects w/ Skerik like Dead Kenny Gs. He's coming around again in a month opening for Marco Benevento, who I've seen before but wasn't overly impressed with. Will have to see that again even if I don't stick around for Marco.


Lots of good shit coming up next few months:
Scott "Wino" Weinrich & Conny Ochs 8/21 Broadway Joe's - Buffalo
Jello Biafra & The Guantanamo School Of Medicine 8/26 Beachland Ballroom, Cleveland
Skerik's Bandalabra 9/9 DBGB's - Buffalo
Neil Hamburger 9/16 Ninth Ward - Buffalo
Mike Dillon Band 9/20 Nietzche's - Buffalo
Big Business 9/23 Mohawk Place - Buffalo
Melvins Lite + Tweak Bird 9/25 Grog Shop - Cleveland
Saint Vitus + Weedeater 9/29 Grog Shop
Rocket From The Tombs 10/6 Mohawk Place
Mike Watt & The Missingmen 10/19 - Mohawk Place
Primus(evening with in 3-D) 10/23 Rapids Theatre - Niagara Falls NY

Agreed. There is a lot of Prog mixed up in SOAD's alt-rage music. And it's the darker, weirder prog that influences SOAD, like Zappa and Crimson, as opposed to Yes and ELP. I've seen SOAD 4 times now and they are definitely one of my current top 10-20 bands to see live.

BTW, I used to say the same thing about Mr. Bungle, as far as being a great combination of Zappa and Metal styles.

YES! Loves my my Bungle! Top-notch band! I guess I didn't include them because (a) they no longer exist and (b) they cover so many facets of music that it'd be "unfair" to lump them in with the other metal acts.

Stubb a Dub will never die!
