Accordian to the Ike Willis home page...

"It was while in college at Washington University, St. Louis that Ike Willis and Frank Zappa met. As a guitar player since the age of 8, Ike was studying political science. He volunteered to help with the concert committee just so he could get a "Back Stage Pass" to meet Frank Zappa.

The rest as they say, is history."
