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

    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.

    Good luck and break a leg with your spring tour endeavors! I'm sorry to hear rumors surrounding all of these disputes and troubles going on but wish the best for you, the band, and your family. No matter what the name of the band is even if it doesn't 'roll off the tongue', I'll be glad to sit in the audience; and I'm sad I won't be able to make it to one of these special shows for the DZ VZ tour! 

         Best regards, 

    Kait

    Hello Mr. Dweezil, my name is fabrizio and I write from Italy, from Rome more precisely. I only have 41 years but I grew up listening to his father's records. I would just say a few things. His father was the greatest of the greatest. And you're the only one in the world that manages to make it back to life as it should be. I am very sorry not being able to attend one of his concerts, but if it were to come to Italy I'll be there. You probably will not ever read these thoughts, but we still wanted to express them. a greeting and a hug from Italy, a land to which his dad and you're very close ps: I'm sorry for my bad English

      Hi Fabrizio,

      Thank you very much for the kind words. I am coming to Milan this summer to play a concert with my band. Hopefully you will be able to make it there from Rome.

    Hey Dweezil,

    Any chance that the Via Zammata tour will make it to Nashville, TN?

    I've seen you three times here with ZPZ, but it would be cool to hear you play your own stuff!

    Best,

    Cory Howell

    Nashville, TN

    P.S. Both of my daughters LOVE "Dragon Master"!

    Of humorous note the so called dark acting of the USDA started long ago. Back in 1971 the PBS Series "The Great American Dream Machine" had a skit where a critic asked consumers if they could match wits with the United States Department of Agriculture. The skit focused on the wordsmithing that the USDA used to grade the various sizes of olives. A large portion fo the skit he is citiquing the wordsmithing that is dispaled on the various sizes olives are marketed.

    He makes his way through the various USDA approved sizes. "Which is the biggest? The Giant, The Jumbo or the Extra Large? It does not stop there, Colossal, Mamouth, Super Colossal and Large are brought in for further scrutinization.

    Pointedly it's not how the olives stack up in size but the wordsmithing the USDA allows to be put on cans of olives is a bit preposterous. He goes through dictionary definitions comparing the definitions to the USDA wordsmithing.

    While the text here may not bring forth the intended laughter, the skit moved forward to where pictures of ollives and descriptions on cans that were not USDA approved, such as Super Supreme, was assembled for scrutiny. The skit concludes  that in the future you might not have to bring your micrometer or slide rule to the store because there will be a Gargantuan Olive. One olive the size of the entire can, and but also, the can opener does not work to open the can.
