December 31, 2012...
2012 has been a splendid Zappa Year for me : I attended 22 ZPZ shows this year, over 3 tours (US february, US Summer, UK November)...
I keep track of all the setlists from the shows I attended, and in my 38 ZPZ shows, they played 822 songs (over 21 average), and I could hear 123 different songs (119 by FZ, 2 by Van Halen, 1 by Z and 1 by The Allman Brothers, but this one had been covered by FZ of course).
The song I heard/saw the most was Hungry Freaks Daddy (20 times), then Dancin' Fool, Apostrophe(') and Carolina Hardcore Ecstasy (18 times each). I heard 24 songs only once, and 16 only twice.
But the best for me is that I was allowed to make photographs and videos of most concert I attended. I gave copies of my photos to the band and shared a few here, more to come... And they also have copies of all my videos, some might surface one day, I hope, when Dweezil decides it is OK to share them (dont ask me, I wont without his permission).
I just hope I can go to more shows this year, and for many more years again... I have met many people from DZW on the road, at shows or at Dweezilla, and it has always been a great pleasure for me. I hope we meet again soon!
So let's make 2013 another great Zappa Year ! - updated 2012-12-30 21:57:50 -0500

- Science, and a lot of other things. But Music is the Best, right after my family (5 children and a wonderful wife who lets me go to all these concerts and also twice to Dweezilla)
- Music and Photography
- What is television ?
- The Boston Strangler, Spinal Tap, My Dinner With Jimi (for the story of Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan before they were in the Mothers, a must-see !)
- Zappa ! I saw Frank 11 times (his last 11 concerts in Paris) and ZPZ 38 times so far... (3 times in France, 12 in the UK and 23 in the USA). I am hoping to catch a few more shows in the US next january or february, and many more after that ! Also I love the Stones (saw them 58 times), Blues, and a lot of other stuff
