Frank Zappa's second child and oldest son has had quite a career of his own, ranging from accompanying his dad on stage to voicing cartoon characters to playing on one album after another, sometimes with the likes of Ozzy Osbourne and Carmine Appice.
Today, Dweezil tours the world with a top-shelf band to introduce his late father's music to a new generation. As he is quick to point out, Zappa Plays Zappa is not an oldies band or a nostalgia act. While Frank Zappa's touring and recording alumni do occasionally grace the stage, the band is assembled from the current crop of musicians.
I spoke with Dweezil earlier this month about his tour, his career, his upcoming CD release and groovy things in general!
