[color=darkred][size=18]Greetings! I have a question... I am thinking about forming a local Zappa tribute show, and want to know how to do it legitamitely. I have been in many "cover bands" through the years, none of which were in the habit of paying royalties, of course. I notice that some of the more successful groups in the area are tribute shows, (Kiss, AC/DC, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin...) I'm guessing that none of them pay royalties either... However, out of my deepest respect of Frank and how he conducted his business, (as well as his family and the way they carry on his business sense and artistic integrity,) I feel the only way to do this thing correctly would be under the direction of the ZFT in securing rights to perform the material in question. I read in the april/may '06 relix interview, where GZ claimed it would cost "cents on a dollar". How does one go about making an arrangement to establish a rate to become a licenced performer of Frank's music?

Again, email Gail. Or certified letter or something.
