Dear posters.
A serious post if i may.
A court injuction is being issued by Ahmet Zappa to prevent Dweezil from using the Zappa name when touring,recording or in any other manner.
Dweezil has commenced a pledge music appeal to help him win this case.
If any of you are in a position to pledge please consider this.
The Zappa name is important.
Dweezil continuing to play Frank's music is crucial.
Believe me Dweezil is the loveliest person you'll ever meet.
He doesn't deserve this.



When they go low-we go high.

This has been going on for a while, its hard to know who to believe.
Ahmet is on record as saying he only wanted one dollar per year from Dweezil for legal reasons, (he runs the family trust)
I don't know what the truth is here, it could be that they are both exaggerating their positions.

I loved Zappa vs Zappa at bluesfest, and Dweezils commentary and explanation of the songs, I think he's a guitar god.
I also think they need to lose the lawyers and have a family heart to heart before they throw away millions for no reason.

Forget my previous comments, I'm uninformed on these things.

Clearly Ahmet is taking the stance that he wants a share of Zweezil's earnings.
Ahmet needs to start his own band in opposition.
Why is Ahmet sole trustee of the trust ?
This is another scenario like The Doors.

"An artist never really chooses when and where they will play.It is for promoters to make offers.It comes down as to whether tours are financially viable." Quote John Mayall.

It was such a pity that his set last time was cut short by technical issues.
We really need to see him back at Bluesfest.

Check out the interview Dweezil did on WTF podcast. Both he and Marc were in tears. Only one side of the story, but illuminating none the less.

Trumpet bells ringing
Bass drum is swinging
As the trombone groans
And the big horn moans
