One thing is for certain. Dweezil cares deeply about his fathers art ...
Thanks for sharing that.
And now for something completely different!:

Cool updates from @DweezilZappa - firstly on the family feud: “...there have been some discussions of engaging in settlement talks. It would be nice to move forward and put this behind all of us." And re. next year: “....we hit the road again with our 'Choice Cuts' tour."
Odds are the mediation has taken place. Looking forward to an update... and a positive outcome (in more ways than one).
Hmm... Settlement talks, eh? Perhaps someone of the legal persuasion finally suggested to the Trust that their current course ends in bankruptcy...
Just think, perhaps something of substance, came out of a little ol' hologram..!
...or the medication. Or meditation. Maybe he went to the Mediterranean? Or some solution that doesn't start with an "M" that has Ahmet acting like less of a jerk.
Meditation? Medication? Ram it up yer snout! <boink>
.... but I got dee crystal ball!
Instead of starting a new thread, I thought I'd put this up here...
the only place I've seen it is on Idiot Bastard's Twitter!

Tickets for @Zappanale on sale now! https://arfshop.zappanale.de/tickets/
Now, tHAT'S something I'd like to see!!!!!!
Since this has been bumped - Dweezil is going to be playing my beloved Knuckleheads Saloon in Kansas City, MO on April 4th!
Be interesting to see how he reacts to the train coming through 20 feet from the stage.
I played at Zappanale 14 in 2003 with the Paul Green School of Rock. What a great experience. It's cool how the whole village sort of shuts down to celebrate the career of FZ. It's on my bucket list to go again (as an adult) but who knows. It's not really convenient to get to as it's hours away from the closest major airport IIRC.
Were you on this track?
Nope. I believe that was Eric Slick. His sister Julie is playing bass on that song, and I don't think I ever drummed on any of the songs she played on.
I played the drum solo, Montana, and My Guitar Wants To Kill Your Mama on this dvd: Various - XIV. Zappanale 2003 24.-27.07. . I can't remember if any of my other Zappa songs were played at Zappanale. Maybe Peaches?
I believe the PGSOR played Zappanale the next year or another later year(s) but that was the only one I participated in.
I saw her with Belew last year. She's incredible.
I guess that compilation was only distributed smazdat.
I have a copy of it somewhere, or my parents do.

It's been a long time coming but we've done it! Ahmet Zappa, head of the Zappa Family Trust and a Very Wonderful Guy, joins us for a chat about the State Of The Zappa Union, the legacy of his mother Gail and much more! Plus listener questions answered! Come on down and get on down with the ZappaCast!
Haven't listened to this yet....so...here's hoping it's positive!
re: Zappanale; "I don't want to be a ZAPPA COP!"- Ahmet.
I suppose I should listen to this just to be fair.
Interesting that he inherited his father's ability to speak in CAPITAL LETTERS.
I sort of want to listen but sort of don't. I'm not an AZ fan but I'm interested to hear what news there may be. I'll wait for someone else here to do the doirty woirk and post highlights instead I think. I'd listen to Joe, he knows his - and FZ's - onions but I can't be cool with AZ anymore.
What about the really important news on the Zappa front - the current length of Diva's mile-long scarf project?
Let me know when it reaches a mile.
Dweezil Zappa is really the only credible person from the surviving family that has any relevance. Frank would be rolling in his grave if he knew what was going on. What a shame it has come to this.
That was my 'eye-brows' that I put on 'Zappa cop', 'coz.....
I would watch THAT show......
