Subby, you have + a million coming from me.

This line-up was insane; one of the most talented group of musicians ever.

Only thing missing from that era is Jean-Luc Ponty.

Jean-Luc Ponty was at one or two of the shows at the Palladium in NYC in the 70's that I went to on Halloween Night... but memory fails me for obvious reasons as to which ones!

Frank was grabbed from us too young.... imagine him running a country?


/goes to rub his autograph from his book in my den to remember

No Jeff Simmons like it claims, but that might be for the best ....

I saw him in '74 in Naperville Il. He walked by me on his way to the stage, guitar in hand and nodded to me. Great show.....

Thanks for that!
I'm now breaking out my vinyl in the living room and going to the city with tiny lights.... to let the little autobugs buzz

This is one of the reasons of which I admire him so much. He had the talent to pick/and play with what was real talent.

That's badass. Thanks, subby. George Duke brings the funk.

I'll always find a half hour for FZ.

A lot of jazz wanking going on there.

/Ring of fire

What a nice way to spend a Sunday morning. Thanks, Subby.

Wow. Time well spent subby. Napoleon Murphy Brock recorded an album in a friends studio a few years ago, so it was great to see him performing with Frank in this video.
 
2012-03-26 02:12:04 PM
George Duke was so great in Zappa's band..... Ive seen Frank a bunch of times, but never with that lineup. :-(


Duke still sucks

I'm a throw some love out to Ruth Underwood.

If you listen to the tracks from shows she didn't make (the Penn State- Edinboro show that some of the Roxy & Elsewhere cuts were taken), the songs are HORRIBLY compromised without her input.
