Zappa plays Zappa
Hi all! I'm interested in hearing about your views on Dweezil's Zappa Plays Zappa 2 DVD set and ZPZ tours. Both are/were pretty amazing... especially for Z fans. My only issues with the LA shows. They were LOUD. So loud as to be painful. And they were at the HOUSE OF BLUES. Going to the HOB for a rock show is like going to the Queen Mary for a boat ride. The trappings are there but they really have nothing to do with each other. The drinks and the staff are the best things going for HOB and both of those would be subpar in a skid row bar. John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix and Steve Marriot could form a heavenly band (with Bonzo on drums) and ask me to play bass and I'd jump at the chance until I found out all the shows would be at the various HOBs. I'd have to opt out at that point for moral reasons for an acoustic tour of hell with Brian Jones.
