Dweezil Zappa and the Zappa Legacy


Dweezil Zappa (05 de Setembro de 1969) é um guitarrista americano, filho do grande Frank Zappa. Zappa Plays Zappa é uma banda de tributo a Frank Zappa, liderada por Dweezil Zappa - seu filho mais velho - que foi formada em 2006. Foi por 3 vezes indicado ao Grammy Awards, na categoria "Best Rock Instrumental Performance".


The band debuted in 2006 with shows in Europe, Canada, and the United States during May and June (the tour was also known as Zappa Plays Zappa: Tour de Frank'). The shows presented a collection of Frank Zappa's rock-oriented compositions from the 1960s to the late 1970s. Apart from Dweezil Zappa on lead guitar, many of the band members previously played with Frank Zappa. Among those, Napoleon Murphy Brock (sax, flute, and vocals) was an integral part of the band, while drummer/vocalist Terry Bozzio and guitarist Steve Vai performed as guests in parts of the shows. At several shows the live band played along with audio and video recordings of Frank Zappa himself, notably portions of "Chunga's Revenge", "Dumb All Over", "Cosmik Debris", and "Muffin Man".
