Andrew Greenway aka The Idiot Bastard reports

"The gorgeous Gail Zappa has invited me to cover a Frank Zappa song.
I am incredibly honored. I am looking through his oeuvre.
That's a whole lot of oeuvre! Any suggestions? You know I like things fruity.
Suggestions?”
asks Lucy Lawless, aka Xena: Warrior Princess.

Rather odd, no? Did Lucy do her own ululating on the Xena show? If so, I approve.

Didn't I see a song called Talentless on a boot or something?

The best song I can honestly say would be right for you is..."The Torture Never Stops"

Just watching Lucy in Spartacus: Blood And Sand reminded me of this. On her website, she had this to say:

"I spent a fun day with the fabulous Gail Zappa recording a song from one of Frank Zappa's unproduced operas, “Hunchentoot.” The song we did was “FLAMBAY.” It's about the alien Queen who is in love with this big ol' spider, Hunchentoot (who has a harmonica over which he hunches and toots). She is lamenting that though he lets her fondle his privates, he is, nevertheless, holding out for a woman with eight arms. This unrequited love is driving her mad.

Gail came to my show at the Roxy and came backstage afterwards. She invited me to come record with some of the musicians from Dweezil's band who won Grammys the next night. She said I could sing any song I wanted, but she really felt “FLAMBAY” was something I should consider. I listened to it with Joe, her producer, who worked on a heap of Frank's stuff, and I thought, holy shit, that's waaay too hard and in too high a key. We chose “MAGIC FINGERS” instead and then at the end of the day we had half an hour left and I said, why don't you throw on “FLAMBAY” and we'll just see what happens. I had never sung the song out loud before, thnking that the key was too high, etc. But something crazy happened, something alchemical. I have never done anything that outrageous before, and you all know that's really saying something. You will all get to hear it in time, I guess.

We just did it in one take, but Gail and Joe were in tears afterwards. To get the original music online, they had had to open a reel of tape from 1979 (or was it '73?) and it brought back a lot of memories for them. They cracked a bottle of wine, and Gin for me, and we toasted what was a great week for the Zappa family. I love those guys."

Most excellent, alchemie, grammy, Lucy Flawless, all in one post, thanks for this extremely charming trick. Greenish alien singeresses would have lured no cat from its dream of magicianship. ....cobwebs still are the most strongest fibres there is.

Work should be done getting more stuff from the vault released instead of doing karaoke with some washed up cow has-been TV actress.

And maybe we should take those lawyers out to the zoo, because there are millions of images like that in many places in the world, and some women wearing it are even more attractive.

Now, if those lawyers are intelligent enough to think that the movies is what the world is all about, then we can have a good discussion in court, otherwise, they would look so stupid and silly that they might find themselves in jail and dis-bar'ed for their lucidity and bad drugs!

you people are mean.

Treating this as a legit inquiry, I would ask Lucy what her nominal vocal range is, and what genres she is comfortable in.

Personally I would like to hear her sing "A Nun Suit Painted On Some Old Boxes".

I could not agree more; what a self indulgent waste of time....but do what you want
