Hello Everyone, It's been a long time since I've updated my status on my site. I've been very busy with a plethora of music related things. I released Via Zammata and have begun touring and playing songs from the album. I've recently completed another Experience Hendrix tour. Next up another short DZ VZ run in May and back to rehearsals for ZPZ after that! - updated

    Wow, that sounds like a wonderful idea! What Gary wrote, that is! The Wollam Rink Show was AWESOME, a "Kinda, Sorta, Almost Like It Reunion" with Brand X would be (well) Out-0f-This-Wrold... (if McGlaughlin happened to show up, OUCH!

  • Gary

    @DZ,

    Leaving this here. Possibly you would want to contact Brand X  management for a tour similar, to the one you did with Return To Forever.

    Looking forward to the Brand X Reunion

    Seeing Brand X open for John McGlaughlin at the Dr Pepper Festival at Central Park Wollman Rink  in the 70s was eye and ears opening. Since that time I've seen Brand X, Tunnels and Percy Jones on many occasions. The band going back to the core 70s is a second genesis of fusion. 

    First we had Return To Forever and Zappa Plays Zappa. It would be great to see Dweezil Zappa and Brand X unite for a series of shows.

    In speaking of The Wollamn Rink, FZ and The Mothers, along with Budy Guy, played their when it was called The Schafer Music Festival, August 3rd 1968.

    Dweezil, I hope you get a chance to come back to Nashville, TN, in the not-too-distant future! I've loved all three shows I've seen you play here!  Best wishes on all your current...challenges.

    Dweezil Hello dear, my name is Bridget and I write from Rome, I was (and still am a fan of Frank today). I fell for him to hear the first notes of Tinseltown Rebellion, in fact since then not a day goes by without at least listen to his albums. Your father was an absolute musical genius, and you're the only one who knows how to interpret and perform their difficult and wonderful music. What amazed me and made my heart beat in watching your videos, are your hands because they are ... they are so similar to those of your father! I appreciate you very much for the love and emotion that you put when playing his pieces. You are a wonderful person, and I wish to express my respect! You're a big Dweezil, I am rooting for you. Do not beat yourself, but keep doing what you were born. Remember, love is born from love! Nothing and no one can defeat this. I apologize for my English, I helped him with a translator, although I'm sure that at least in part to be able to understand my message. Good luck on your new tour.

    Dear Dweezil,

    sorry to bother you with a personal message here, please see this more as a "fan letter". It's the only way I found to reach out to you.
    I already posted this publicly in the KS comments. I just thought it could be of some support, so I wanted to point it out to you.
    Partly because it took me some time to write, and I find it a bit of waste to be just read by people who're obviously not quite getting it, even if I respect their (lack of) point of view.
    Just hoping I'm not totally off the mark here.

    Feel free not to read it ! (it is a bit long...)

    It is related to another comment just below it, and to my original one before (which I posted on twitter as a pic, and that you "liked").

    Sincerely, and with kind regards, music is the best.
    And looking forward to seeing ZPZ (I insist) again this summer.
    Laurent

      Thanks for your support! It's quite a messy situation. Our tour starts soon and the band is ready to rock some new material.
