About me:
Long time Zappa fan and friend. I was the person that was totally responsible for introducing Frank to Jack KIrby, with whom I created an Italian supernatural superhero, Noctvrnvs. Met Alice Cooper and Captain Beefheart (Don Van Vliet and his wife Jan). Also friend of music greats Mark Volman, Lauren Wood and Jerry Lawson of The Persuasions. I've become an LA area karaoke singer after being the nickname "Magic Mic" by BACKSTAGE's legendary KJ Shane. I may be Elvis but he's the Colonel! I love 80 music (Prince, Elvis Costello, New Order, et. al.) I have been truly blessed when it comes to my love of music. I am a noted comic book scholar (Google me for details) and once taught a class on comic books at Loyola Marymount University, where I've worked for some 26 years in the Media department of their library. Majored in TV production at Boston's the now defunct Grahmn Junior College with Marc Summers (DOUBLE DARE, UNWRAPPED) and Alex Paen (ANIMAL RESCUE, MISSING). Worked at WKTV and WCIX. Also had Kermit Schafer (Blooper concept creator) as a mentor and appear on one of his Pardon My Blooper albums doing a reinactment of a locker room blooper.

    Michael,

    Hello Mike thank you for you'r friend acceptance. First off i realy like you'r profile picture so who's the dude with you, lol. listen i'm thrilled and honored to make your aquaintance. Any  friend of Frank Zappa will always be a friend of mine. You must be very proud of the way Dweezil worked his rear end off to honor his fathers work. To perform the music of a master one must be a master. I think Dweezil is all of that. Because i did not know you back then, belated as it is. I am truely sorry for the loss of you'r friend Frank Zappa. For i still miss him to this day. (R.I.P. F.Z.) 

    ttyl   Peace Out Fruie.   Zappa  Rocks  and  DZpZ   Rocks  Zappa!
