Zappa Plays Zappa Watermelon Soundcheck Roxy 12 08 13
Published by Larry Firth on 11 Dec 2013 "This is the sound check version so it isn't the full song, but gives you an idea of how beautiful Dweezil plays this masterpiece of Franks. He is playing the Jimi Hendrix Fender body with a Frank Zappa neck.....priceless. Again apologies on the poor quality"
EDITORIAL NOTE: While Larry Firth does admit to the poor audio quality it is nice to see a close-up vid of DZ performing on the Zappa/Hendrix Strat. A due noted correction; in regards to the neck, the current neck was made for Dweezil by Alex Perez and some other folks at Fender.
There is an articulate video on Normans Rare Guitars youtube page called "Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster brought in by Dweezil Zappa". In this video Dweezil goes into detail regarding the newly refurbished restoration. The guitar is currently re-configured with an early well known FZ configuration. As it had appeared in the January 1977 issue of Guitar Player.
"Good God!", December 11, 1980.... Thirty Three years later the eternal flame of FZs Big Note rings throughout the universe. I don't see any reason to over-analyze Jesus of Nazareth, but then again, for those that investigate any possible conceptual continuity, the quote above does come from within the track of FZs air sculpture. I guess a linen robe, sash, leather sandals, fish and bread for could be some mystery culinary ingredients of the day. As I celebrate this day of Zappadan, which happens to be my 51st birthday, the years are going by so very quickly.
