I haven't seen anything about this on the site yet, but it looks like Dweezil's Custom Experience Hendix Strat has been stolen. It apparently was taken at some point between Montana and the first night of this leg of the tour in Kalamazoo.
I hope the thief get's caught. and but also, I hope that custom guitar gets to the point where as many as possible major parts have some form of lojack system built into them. Maybe a guitar could have 7 lojack type devices. and but also engravements that quickly show who the owner is. It's obvious that some of this is allready, I am not sure how far the Guitar Vauits takes lojacking but computer chips are getting so small, hopefully embedding them deep inside soemwhere. If cell phones can have GPS tracking why not a guitar. Hopefull this all could be done without affecting the fidelity but guitar thievery is getting uglier every day.
I'm going to say it, "Who are the dweezilzappaworld police" wauwauwau. I notice that when this site got a new look, there is nothing about the YCFOSA shows. This is not my normal screen name, all names have been changed to protect the innocent. I'm just doing this because I have had friends who have been kick off the site for saying bad things about dweezil. I believe it is very crappy promise somebody something and not deliver but promised to deliver and never having any intention on finishing the shows. Your dad would ahead and finished in writing music on top of it all. I'm sure dweezil will come up with excuse after excuse, but really he has none other than he doesn't want to do it. He could certainly hire somebody to finish the shows up but hasn't after all this time. The truth is We'll never see them. Sucks to be dweezil and have a empty promise hanging over his head like this one. I would love t hear the one show I went too. So Dweezil, what's your excuse now? Maybe try doing your work instead of being on this site more than anyone else. I believe you have far to much work to be on this site. Just saying. I believe l Will be kicked off the site for speaking out and this post will not remain on this site. So when did a Zappa stop believing in free speech.
As the band is on tour in places that I cannot get to visit at this time, I must admit that I really miss the robust reviews people used to post. So far only one review in the TOUR DATES section. I miss the setlists. I miss the great reviews. I even miss the idiotic ones (because people who know, KNOW and some jerk who has an ax to grind isn't going to dissuade the real suppporters of DZ's mission and product). So, with this little rant, I hope that we can generate enough interest in a resumption of a real place to share our thoughts on the shows.
If you can't be there, it is still fun to read about them.
I know I'm getting old and I have a memory like Swiss cheese(full of random holes), but I seem to recall you use to be able to edit your own comments. Is that just a false memory or has that ability been removed? Just curious, anyone else have a similiar recollection?
