SHAME ON YOU ROMA, VERGOGNA, IL CENTRALE WAS HALF EMPTY
I can't blame Dweezil if he didn't play over three hours for us!!!
I'm an old Zappafan, since I bought Chunga's Revenge in late 1970 and since that year I went to many concerts. I saw the MAESTRO in '73, '82. twice in '84 and in '88. I was waiting for this concert for almost a year and brought my 3 children and 2 nephews with me. The ZPZ show in Roma has been a very good show with a very very good sound: drums and bass were wonderful. We missed the presence of Terry, but what the heck, I saw him with Jeff Beck.
Here's the playlist as I remeber it, please apologize if something's wrong:
intro from the ROXY DVD Montana and Dupree's Paradise
Help I'm A Rock
Hungry Freaks Daddy
Let's Take The Water Turn Black
The Idiot Bastard Son
Don't Eat The Yellow Snow
St. Alfonzo's Pancake Breakfast
Tha Black Page # 1
The Black Page # 2 (here Steve Vai joins the band)
Peaches En Regalia
Village Of The Sun
Sofa # 2
Son Of Orange County
More Trouble Every Day
A Token Of My Extreme outro
The hole show was great and played very fine by everyone, the Dweeze played lovely and even spoke some good italian, thank you Dweeze. Surely Dweezil hasn't the presence of his dad on stage but he looks fine.
I missed highlites like Zoot Allures, Torture Never Stops, Bamboozled By Love, Wille The Pimp, Andy, Little Umbellas, RDNZL, Joes's Garage, Watermelon In Easter Hay, Teenage Wind, You Are What You Is, Sharleena, Come From Nowhere, Cosmik Debris, Chunga's Revenge...
Hope to see the best of the ZPZ soon on DVD and also hope to see you back in Roma yearly.
Thanks to Zappa Family Trust and thank you Dweezil for playing this immortal music,
THE MAN WHO PUT DOTS ON THE PAPER IS WATCHING AND MUST BE PROUD OF YOU,
Ciao da bruno, a presto.
