    So very sorry for your loss Dweezil, death sucks, as I'm sure you are very much aware. I hope that you, Megan and Mia can get together with the rest of your family for a riotous celebration of Gail's life. It's what we did when my Mother passed and is so the way to do it. My sincere condolences.

    I just had to come back after hearing the very sad news about Gail.

    I was lucky enough to meet  and chat to the incredible lady.

    May she rest in peace.

    My sincerest condolences are with Dweezil, family and friends.

    Gail Zappa

    January 1, 1945 - October 7, 2015

    Gail Zappa, nee Adelaide Gail Sloatman, age 70, departed this earth peacefully at her home on Wednesday, October 7, 2015, surrounded by her children.

    Married to Frank Zappa at age 22, Gail was a doe-eyed, barefooted trailblazer, giving equal value to her domestic and professional responsibilities as matriarch of the family and overseer of all Zappa enterprises. She devoted herself to partnering with her husband in the music business and raising their children, Moon Unit, Dweezil, Ahmet and Diva.

    Gail enthusiastically executed her role as guardian of her husband’s creative life and, with his passing, strove to ensure his legacy as one of the leading American composers and musicians of the 20th century. In this and all business endeavors, Gail passionately advocated to establish clear definitions of intellectual property and copyright laws on behalf of not just her husband, but all artists. While she conducted intricate legal negotiations with corporations as grande dame of the Zappa Family Trust, she never failed to impart the sense of humor that was part and parcel of her indomitable and formidable personality. Gail, self-described as a pagan absurdist, was motivated by love in all aspects of her life, kept her authenticity intact, unbowed and, simply put, was one bad ass in the music business and political world.

    Gail will forever be identified as a key figure in the creative renaissance that is Laurel Canyon. But more than any singular accomplishment, she defined herself in her personal relationships, happiest when surrounded by loved ones and artists, often one and the same. The memories she leaves behind are indeed her own art form. Her searing intelligence, unforgettable smile, wild thicket of hair and trailing black velvets leave a blur in her wake.

    There is no further information to report. This is the only statement that will be released by the family.

      OMG! Had a visionary moment where Frank and Gail were on these sleds going down snow filled hills to Reeny Ra, The happiness on their faces was self evident, and but also, some moments in time of their children were in the air. A swirl of the wind so to speak.

      Take for example Dweezil and Moon's mic time in Who Do You Think You Are?, while Frank caught so many of life's moments to tape, each and every moment in time is now clearly in ballance.



      As Frank & Gail are now in a dimesion that spans the time of the universe.May their children, friends and all who come in contact with the magnitude of their lives let their spirit ring forever. May the good will of their humanity be with us all.


      While our time on Earth is brief may the moments of life last for all of eternity.

    Zappa rocks tonight! I am so looking forward to this show. Drove by the venue this morning and saw Dweezil's RV. Resisted the temptation to knock on his door and give a personal welcome. Long live ZPZ.
