My eyelids got a little heavy at the 5 minute mark — your mileage may vary.

    Slightly worrying obsessive behaviour. Not unusual amongst lead guitarists!

    sorta dull but i like seeing the guitars that frank had modified, especially the Roxy SG.

    That one is not the Roxy SG. The Roxy SG was original Gibson and was destoyed by an airline. This one here – Dweezil calls it the Baby Snakes SG – is custom made and not original Gibson. The Baby Snakes SG was used as early as the 75/76 tour (or maybe already during the Royce Hall shows).

    Tap dancing? River dancing? A stereo image?

    DZ must still be getting paid to promote some of these manufacturers, Barry. This Guitar Rig was brought to by…

    Does anyone happen to know what became of the blond Strat copy made by Performance Guitars in LA?

    I didn’t know that about the Roxy SG. Of course, it doesn’t even take an airline to destroy an SG–they’re notoriously fragile, and I doubt the modern metal travel cases for guitars existed in 1973/74. Did the Roxy SG have all the onboard circuitry? Because the guitar in the Dub Room show doesn’t look like it has nearly as many fancy little switches and knobs. It also looks like it doesn’t balance very well, as Frank is always holding the neck with his left hand while not playing–I hate that about vintage SGs.

    Gotta love his “just like Daddy”-styled vocabulary…it’s a bit grating.

    Agreed, Alex. One really has to wonder if he really talks this way, or if it’s just an affectation he projects whenever a video camera or a microphone is near by. I mean, even on stage, Frank didn’t talk in this condensed Zappa-speak…

    hello! Can I ask what theme are you using in your blog? thanks!

    “Condensed Zappa-speak” !!!

    (sputtering with laughter)

    that’s great!!!!

    I just watched that — it was indeed from the Guitar World DVD, which us guitar-nerds that subscribe to the mag get with each issue….

    Yeah — for us tech-heads , this is pretty cool.

    But — the side of me that has been attacked, personally insulted, shoved and spat at by Dweezil’s mom, monitor-guy and road-manager FORCES me to ask –especially with DZ pointing out HOW special and time-intensive building this rig was —

    Did the guy who did all the work to build it get paid yet??? As was publicly discussed and exposed by others – that was an issue with the recent crew-blowups for ZPZ, non payment for work.

    I had heard that YES, Nordegg was in fact finally paid for at least part of what he was owed, but I love how DZ can deliver stuff like this with a straight face, knowing at that point the work was “free”…

    Anyway — I am good at being able to separate such questions, and my reactions to the ZFT, from the FACTS.

    And the fact is — DZ gives a very good run thru of much of the gear in his rack, and kudos to him and his team for carefully maintaining what are clearly museum-quality, important pieces of american rock history.

    HEADS UP!!! “MY DINNER WITH JIMI” (nothing to do w/ this topic. i don’t know where else to post this, sorry). a movie written by howard kaylan about his 60’s rock nroll experiences. i’ve never seen it but i’m interested & figured people here might be too. here is the internet movie database synopsis: “This is the story of Howard Kaylan and his band, the Turtles, as they explore the worlds of sex, drugs and rock and roll in the 1960’s. Along the way, Howard meets the Beatles, Jim Morrison, Frank Zappa, Brian Jones, Mama Cass and a host of other pop luminaries; finds new and hilarious ways to avoid the Draft Board and, ultilmately, ventures to swinging London to take on the Beatles and sit through an amazing late-night repast with the legendary Jimi Hendrix, himself. The colorful conclusion will never be erased from your memory. This film embodies the true spirit of sixties rock and the Summer of Love. ” available, according to netflix on 6/23/2009.
    might be worth checking out. marisa tomei’s brother plays frank.
