ZPZ For Grammy

Pete Griffin bassist says:

As you may have heard, Zappa Plays Zappa has been nominated for a Grammy! We’re in the Best Rock Instrumental category for our live performance of “Peaches En Regalia.” Seeing as how I’ve always felt this song was three and half minutes of compositional genius, and that we painstakingly dissected the original recording to reproduce it live, I think we may have a decent chance of winning (over David Gilmour, Nine Inch Nails, Rush, and Metallica).

Update, from the ZPZ forums:

DZ announced at the top of the show that he has transferred the footage from his dad’s concert at the Roxy, 35 years ago to hi-def, and will finally be releasing it on DVD!!!!!

    seriously, I’d be pissed If I wrote and performed a song and lost to a cover.

    There is no reason why a Grammy Award Should not be given to someone who does a cover version of a composition. For instance, an orchestra could be awarded a Grammy for it’s performance of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring. Or, Henrietta and Myrna Neudorff could win one for Go Tell it on the Mountain.

    I wish it were true but I’m also cynical.
