- 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.
