So who is Bozzio playing with now? Sorry,I don't follow drummers that much. :oops:

Apparently, this UK tour is his latest project. Bozzio has never stayed with one band or project for too long which makes him interesting on one hand, but maybe not really appreciated enough on the other. Besides Zappa, his highest profile gigs have been with Missing Persons and Jeff Beck but he's been on a lot of great albums by a lot of people. Check out the Bozzio/Levin/Stevens albums if you like great instrumental rock music kind of in the vein of Jeff Beck but also with some flamenco influences. http://youtu.be/8KXiADQg988

HoBoLeMa was great:

Yeah. I wished I could have seen that. I just posted on another thread that that tour came near me (a three hour drive) but work and money (a lack of it) prevented it. I have been hoping for some official documentation of that tour (cd and/or dvd).

They will be joined by Austrian guitar virtuoso Alex Machacek and German drumming phenom Marco Minnemann.


these guys were part of jobson's band ukz that he formed in the late 00's. they released an ep called radiation in 2009.

i saw the jobson>wetton>bozzio line-up a few times as the opening act for jethro tull circa 1979 and also saw them headlining at the palladium in nyc around the same time. thought they were great every time and would see them again if possible.
