This is Frank's son Dweezil in his Band Zappa plays Zappa. I saw this exact band - they were incredible. Some amazing soloing starts at 2:30 and then again several other times during this performance that includes Steve Vai, Terry Bozzio, Napolian Murphy Brock and all these other wonderful musicians.
Thought I'd mention that I just saw Dweezil again on Sunday 10/13. Another incredible show! On this tour, they played the "Roxy & Elsewhere" album all the way through. Seems like every time I see them them make a point to play all the hard stuff, which I personally appreciate. The "Village of the Sun" and "Echidna's Arf" medley is one of the coolest pieces of music I've ever heard.
Don't be a naughty Eskimo.... (and don't be whippin' on my favorite baby seal
with a lead-filled snow shoe).
I few years back I discovered that a dude I grew up with is Frank's cousin... trippy stuff man!!!
He's well known in San Diego and he went to high school at Mission Bay High, San Diego. And that's where he joined his first band.
Copied from his bio.
—Frank Zappa, 1989
Zappa joined his first band at Mission Bay High School in San Diego. He was the band's drummer. About the same time his parents bought a phonograph, which allowed him to develop his interest in music, and to begin building his record collection. R&B singles were early purchases, starting a large collection he kept for the rest of his life. He was interested in sounds for their own sake, particularly the sounds of drums and other percussion instruments. By age 12, he had obtained a snare drum and began learning the basics of orchestral percussion. Zappa's deep interest in modern classical music began when he read a LOOK magazine article about the Sam Goody record store chain that lauded its ability to sell an LP as obscure as The Complete Works of Edgard Varèse, Volume One. The article described Varèse's percussion composition Ionisation, produced by EMS Recordings, as "a weird jumble of drums and other unpleasant sounds". Zappa decided to seek out Varèse's music. After searching for over a year, Zappa found a copy (he noticed the LP because of the "mad scientist" looking photo of Varèse on the cover). Not having enough money with him, he persuaded the salesman to sell him the record at a discount. Thus began his lifelong passion for Varèse's music and that of other modern classical composers.
