About me:
A Zappa fan from the Garrick Theatre days (I was 13 when I first saw the Mothers). I was one of the lucky ones to win a guitar and more important, a chance to jam with Dweezil and this terrific band. I have seen every ZPZ show in the NY area since the start and saw countless shows with Frank (all the Felt Forum, Palladium, Halloween, etc shows). Still play guitar. For fun, I am also a rabbi and ride a motorcycle.

    Very good review of the Las Vegas show thanks.

    I wish I shoulda woulda coulda been there.

    Peace Fruie.

    Nice review on the Vegas show, Gary. I saw some footage on fb. Inca, Evelyn. Amazing!

  • Gary

    Was so nice to see yoru review. Sounds like you had a great time in Berklee, and but also, some special guests. Not to take anything away from the remarkable job the band is doing, I concur where you have stated that "the band never sounded better",  but the special guest scenarios that you caught and are on the way are examples of some unique talents that I would love to have a chance to see. No need to divulge, or overtly fawn, but I expect you heard the good news on one special guest that  it sounds like should be at one of your upcomming shows. Peace

    How are you Gary?

      Hangingin there -- will see next week if the third surgery was able to repair the patella (knee cap) -- for now living on a wave of pain meds and trying to do work in the moments of lucidity.  At least I can still play guitar...

  • Rob E.

    Good luck with your knee. Had some minor knee surgery myself. Meniscus. Left, twice, and right, also twice. Didn't impair my guitar playing. 

    I was 17 at my first FZ show. September '73. Amsterdam Concertgebouw, first show. My last was May '88. Front row center at the Ahoy' Rotterdam. Unforgettable.
