Frank Zappa: Son of Mr Green Genes

As this weekend has seen a celebration of what would have been Frank Zappa's 70th birthday at the Roundhouse, it is high time we featured the Grand Wazoo here.

I am a good friend of a Zappa completist, so I have heard a good deal of weird stuff over the years, but this is really rather lovely.

Just got back from an expedition to the Roundhouse.

Was completely awesome, great players from then and now - reaffirmed that Frank was one of the greatest musicians of all-time.

His son, Dweezil, did a superb job of upholding his family name and gave us a great chance to bask in his Father's legacy. I think a lot of people will be more prepared to hear what he's got to offer now they've heard the dedication he put into replicating his Fathers solos.

There was a lot of love in that room, not to mention a lot of bad facial hair!
