Well Dennis I'll have to correct you. Zappa HAD a female singer in his group in '76 named lady Bianca.
I had a wonderful time, monday, they had me freaking out the whole 3 hours.

"I have seen a lot of fathers with there son(s). Proudly presenting the FZmusic they die for."

...actually I was the one bringing my father along ;)

I disagree with Dennis on all points, but I have no time to go into it. Anyway, all the things I was going to say have already been said.

I still get tears in my eyes when I think how magnificent it was. Just like I did during Sofa.

Frank Zappa is not dead, he just smells funny.

If you liked last night, I'd advise:
- Roxy 'n Elsewhere
- Overnite sensations
- One size fits all
- You can't do that on stage anymore II (if that's the so called Helsinki concert).


Thanks, Frans, appreciate this! I'll browse to amazon immediately 8)

I do not know too much of Frank's music ( :oops: ) and I went to the show mostly because of the little Italian virtuoso. I enjoyed the music very much, what a great musicians, Dweezil and all were great. So, I guess that I have to start buying FZ cd's now.....but where do I start? :?


Just start with strictly commercial....

and then...

*big grin*


just the rest :roll:

I regret that I have to say this, and I don't want to spoil the party, but I really didn't like mondaynight's concert. The reasons for this are the following:

...
I'm am curious for reactions...


I see your point but I don't agree, I liked the rockband attitude and the set up was very much like the 1988 concert, very clean so to say. OK it was not a Halloween performance, but that is another time, another place. I also think you should give the guys a break, it was their fisrt show, wait to see how they play in a month or two.

And I liked I'm so cute and Trying to grow me a chin a lot.

So if you expecting an early 70's atmosphere yo are going to be dissapointed, but if you like to hear very well played modern versions of his songs (like I do) You're in for a threat. :)

Absolutely free-king fabulous. The`re playing Copenhagen right now..wish i were there. But...I'll be seeing the band again next sunday in Düsseldorf (http://www.tickets-per-post.de/tickets- ... ctioncode=). Still having goosebumps! I saw Frank when I was about 11 years old for the first time in Rotterdam (`81 or `82, anybody??) and then later in 1988 (the last concert in Holland, I believe). It was bizarre to hear Frank`s music played live again after 18 years. I had never expected to experience it again... Also the first time I heard The black page, one of my favourites, live on stage..brrr

To Dweezil and the Zappa robots,
Thank you all for a night with wonderful renditions of Frank's music in the Heineken music hall.
Well worth the wait. From the intro footage to the last note.
It was great to see everyone having such a good time. Clear to see that
especially Napoleon and Julia were really enjoying themselves on stage.
Pitty Ahmet could not be there. Great to hear and see Terry Bozio and Steve Vai.
The only thing missing was Frank's voice.
Don't let the cd-throwing person get you down.
Please come back for more.
Frank would have been proud!

If you would like to get to know the diversity in FZ's music, I would recommend the following albums to you:

1. Hot Rats (for his jazz/rock style)
2. Jazz From Hell (for his synclavier compositions)
3. The Yellow Shark (for his contemporary classical music)

I'd like to add something like "Roxy n elsewhere" for the live performance aspect ;) (or you can't do that on stage anymore 2, or loads of other choices really)

Dweezil (and the rest of the band),

In one word: PERFECT! Top-performances and good quality of music. It had everything: music, drama, emotions and good, good memories of Frank. Keep on going this way. Looking forward to find the complete setlist somewhere on the net and.... to buy a live CD/DVD of ZPZ.

Best Regards,
Harold Verhagen (www.21world.org)

The first ZPZ-show in Amsterdam was great: goosepimps and no cheap thrills. everything came together.

it was nice to see Dweezil on his premier-gig, a little bit shy, sometimes a little bit uncomfortable, between all the routine of Napoleon, Terry and Steve. He once forgot a line, and smiled it away. And than this asshole throwing a discman at Dweezil. Wow, he took it so great. He asked the guy to leave the room, and the crowd was quiet and cheered when this motherfucker left indeed. And what about the last song, before the encore: Sofa. tears in his eyes, crying on stage. The crowd took it so great, giving him all the regards.

this was truly an unforgetable evening, a true honoring of Frank.

thank you, thank you Dweezil
