Dweezil Zappa

Son of Frank Zappa and a heavy metal disciple of Eddie Van Halen and Steve Vai, Dweezil released his first album, Havin' a Bad Day, in 1986. He worked a stint as a VJ on MTV, appeared in the films Pretty in Pink and The Running Man, and had a brief sojourn in TV situation comedy with his sister Moon Unit, on 1988-1989's Normal Life. Dweezil also issued his second album, My Guitar Wants to Kill Your Mama, in 1988, following it in 1991 with Confessions, and subsequently took a break from solo recording. He worked in television for a time, composing the theme song to the sadly short-lived Ben Stiller Show and voicing the character of Ajax on the brilliant USA Network animated series Duckman. He next formed the band Z with brother Ahmet on vocals; the group released two albums together: 1994's Shampoohorn and 1996's Music for Pets. In addition to his work as a session guitarist, Zappa busied himself with Happy Hour ( a TV show for the USA Network which debuted in 1999 and was co-hosted with Ahmet ), and his first solo album in nine years, 2000s mostly instrumental Automatic. Following this, Dweezil fell back out of the public eye and re-dedicated himself to learning guitar, changing his style a bit and adopting many of his father's picking techniques. In 2005, he assembled a crack band of younger players and recruited FZ alumni Steve Vai, Terry Bozzio, and Napoleon Murphy Brock for the critically acclaimed Zappa Plays Zappa tour which hit the road in the summer of 2006. The band (with Brock ostensibly as the frontman) performed an entire program of Frank Zappa compositions with Vai and Bozzio appearing as guests and Dweezil himself as lead guitarist/bandleader. Between legs of that tour, he released Go with What You Know, easily his most ambitious album to date. A studio version and DVD of Zappa Plays Zappa appeared in 2008 with a live album from the project -- Return of the Son Of... -- following in 2010. ~ Cub Koda & Steve Huey, Rovi

I now include the Dweez in my top 10 favorite guitar players list. Dang son! You just done cracked my top 5 list! 'That's what's the deal your dealin' in' :D
How come there's no early dweezel on here
Come on pandora
I just attended Guitar class with Dweezil as instructor then got to see him and his band at the egg in Albany n.Y., covering "roxy & elsewhere" plus an assortment of F.Z. Goodies and An encore!! He tore the place up effortlessly ! The band was tight and loose at the same time, solid to the core! I've been walking on 10' of air for a.couple of days now! One of the nicest guys you could meet, watching him play is like watching Jackie chan or Bruce lee kick a**, fluid and hard hitting!! A chip off t
I saw the Dwez in the city ..ZAPPA PLAYS ZAPPA .... F@#king, Fu@king GREAT !!! THANKS
Started listening to Frank in the late 70's, the man was and still is incredible.. . and it looks as though a new age of Zappa lives on with his son. Purely genius.
MAJOR ZAPPA FAN ALL THE BEST TO THE CHILDREN OF THE FATHER OF THE MOTHERS jomel61@yaho o

Dang! Dweezil must have been using 'The Pick of Destiny' for 'Return of the Son of' :D

Frank Zappa cannot and will not be replaced and certainly not by his son, but what Dweezil has said many times, he plays his father's music as an hommage - he is only trying to tell the world that he loved his father's music....... . and I thank him for that.
I saw Frank Zappa a few times, like father- like, son way cool!
sullivan4til e
Chillin' with the Dweeeeeezil!

Virtuostic guitar work.
I HAVE SEEN THEM PLAY TWICE AWESOME. HE IS SUCH A PROFECTIONES T THEY HIT EVERY NOTE. LIKE HE SAYS LEARNING DADS MUSIC WAS LIKE BEING IN A KNIFE FIGHT WITH A SPOON...BUT I THINK IM GETTING THE HANG OF IT NOW.
CERTAINLY HE IS HIS FATHERS CHILD....... . .

I didn't know Wolverine could play the guitar.
vinsons1
Damn, he's got his old man's guitar chops. Shut up and play yer guitar!
@ some dude... Project Object is better than ZPZ ... lol... tried not to laugh, but.... everyone is entitled to his opinion. I guess. No matter how wrong.
e.robert76
Dweezil and his excellent ensemble blew me away last night in Big D. His guitar work was unbelievable .
good genes
Will see him tonight in Boise at the Knitting Factory

Dweezil is incredible. Just as good, if not better than his father.
Project Object is better than ZPZ, but still I wouldn't pass up another opportunity to see the dweez.
i am truley greatful that dweezil has done this work..i have seen the band 5 times in the greater san diego area..
I am surprised! Been avoiding this because I love Frank more than any other musician. Dweezil definitely has his father's chops; the jury is still out on creativity.. . but I am sold for the next Zappa plays Zappa tour.
I think DZ is the best guitar player I've heard, these days. No need to bring FZ into it. DZ is great!
saw zpz at the schermerhorn in nashville warming up for return to forever. they held their own. note for note. very well rehearsed site reading musicians. not everyone can play st alphonsos pancake breakfast note for note. seeing them again in july. cant wait. pmd

Love Frank,Love Dweezil but for artgarageboy Frank said he thought he was the incarnate of Jimi's guitar playing who by the way I also love.
Frank Zappa was my intro to music.I love that man.Pray for would Peace.
I remember having a bad day in the 80's. Moon singing again; fun times with Dad in the picture. Cool stuff.
schultzdigit a l
what an amazing guitarist, the zappa plays zappa shows are some of the best shows i've ever seen.
Exceptional drumming by Joe Travers!
Thank you Dweezil for keeping this music live!
By the originality and complexity of hs music you can tell that he's a Zappa.
Love this track and love that Dweezil is doing the Zappa name proud. Hey Dweezil one thing the eyebrows are a little too big on this track. In my humble uneducated and completely amateur opinion :-D
Dweezil has some big shoes to fill. His latest album 'Live-In The Moment' demonstrates how far he has come.
the father himselff,aka ; F r a n k Zappa,did a great album suzie cream cheese!!
Happy Zappadan & 71st Birthday of the late Frank Zappa!
12/21/1940-1 9 9 2 He will be missed!
Music is the Best! FZ
Frank was dedicted to find gteat players and giving them a voice. Thus the conducting from joes onward I saw every halloween show at the forem then the pladium. plus many others I miss him. I am sure he is happy with his kids
artgarageboy
Hendrix on a Zappa station? True Z afficiando's understand this to be silly.
Good stuf keep it up

R.I.P. F. Zappa. You live in the hearts of musicians and music lovers everywhere. Thank you Dweezil for giving your fathers music new life on stage.
Zappa Rockz!

So Does..

Music For Pets. A Ground breaking album, stands on its own no matter who his Dad was, and nobody loved Franks stuff more than me.
He can definitely play a little bit.
In my personal opinion Dweezil is the best electric guitarist in the world right now. AMAZING!!
Love Dweezil. Been looking for the album my guitar wants to kill your momma everywhere and can't find it. If anyone knows where to get one, please post it.
