I'm glad to hear that
there are 40 new projects in the works!
Should be a good decade!


EXTREME CAUTION ALERT
I am by no means happy that these "so called fans" are ready to boycott that.
40 Projects in the works and just what we need is a boycott.
In the old days the community would get the lynch ready.
Everyone would come out to watch these so called fans hang

Thank goodness we now live in a more enlightened age, where people are allowed to express their own thoughts, without being beaten into agreeing with just one person....RIGHT, TRENDY?

To save time, let's just hang all of the fans. Who really needs 'em anyway? Fans are the devil, all they do is fuck shit up. Stupid fans...

I for one am very happy with how GZ is doing her job.
Even when her wrath has come down on me I understand she has a job to do.
The fans that view Gail Zappa as some Witchfinder General are doing no service
whatsoever to protecting FZs legacy and moving the project/object forward.

When people die it is very hard to protect the intent of their life work.
Ocean Waves of distorted views take over from the original intent.
Gail is in the best position to protect that artistic integrity and I support her 100% on her difficult mission.

My suggestion is for all to rally behind Gail Zappa 100%
and say thank you very much, YES Thank you very much Gail Zappa.
With 40 projects in the works fans that BOYCOTT are Hanging Themselves.
Don't say I did not warn you.

I think there is simply no market for releases of the kind we got recently. So the 40-projects-in-the-works-plan should be (and probably is already) revised.

Since I'm already in my 50's, it saddens me to know that I won't be around to hear most of these 40 projects. :cry:

Unlike the usual tribute shows staged by groups that have no connection to the original artists, the officially licensed "Zappa Plays Zappa" is true to her husband's art, Zappa said.

"It's more than a tribute band, obviously, because Dweezil is fronting it," she said. "(But) a lot of people who are doing that, they're doing the music of somebody else, mostly picking on dead people, and they're not true to the music and they're not doing it under license."


Hmmm ... I think this is a bit on the emotional/sentimental side of things rather than the truth. Because it is her son, it is ok ... but it is NOT true to the music in the sense of the composer's design and ideas, since Dweezil is playing something that was done before.

Now, if we have a good section of material that is all Dweezil's, or the band's, then we could say that it would be "true to her husband's art" ...

So every music player out there is "true to the artist's art" or they would not be playing! But there is a massive difference, when we're talking being "experimental and try different things" ... which Dweezil is not doing in the ZPZ stuff.
