I interviewed her again in with Scott Parker for the ZappaCast. She was always very sweet and incredibly funny, and I will miss her a lot. Time to re-read her book Being Frank: He says will shortly be seeking pledges to aid his campaign to stop this.
Given that the ZFT half-heartedly sought to copyright the name Zappa for beer and soft drinks in , this is something Dweezil must already have been aware of as a beneficiary of the Trust. Its more recent applications do go further covering live music performances, the production of music and music video recordings, etc.
If these new applications do become legally binding, would Dweezil really be charged any more than he wants from us to help fight for his right to use his surname? To quote Frank, this all seems ill-conceived and promises to keep the courts busy for years. I'd certainly like to know much more before contributing.
You can watch it here. Having failed to reach our break-even sales target, we have re-negotiated deals with everyone - except the bands, of course - in order to lower the running costs. We have also negotiated a new sponsorship deal which covers the shortfall to ensure Festival Moo-ah! A big thanks to all those who have already bought their tickets. Hopefully the prices will drop over the next few days — if not, shopping at Amazon. Thanks a big bunch. The idea is to restore it and to help it to be in its best condition, but to kind of leave it the way that it is and hear the sound that comes out.
Green Genes album coming soon! Listen to it here. Read about this and a whole lot more here. So I said to Frank that we need to make some of these things so they can hold up for the future because 20 years from now everything will be more outrageous. Help them complete it here. They are all being edited, expanded and annotated, so hopefully a very worthwhile exercise.
I especially look forward to playing Outside Now. I anticipate that the dialogue between the guitar and vocal will stir some emotions for me. Check the diary for details. For full details of this new compilation, go here. The first significant change has now been rolled-out in the shape of a new Zappa Store.
So go do that voodoo that you do so well: Need all the Zappa fans moral support and help to find a homeless family in need of a tiny home. I will put up a live camera so you can watch the progress - we need to get suggestions from all of you. Gail helped a lot of people out, and animals, including me. It will be fun and rewarding. Let me know your ideas and suggestions please. With the help of his family and friends, we aim to change that with a documentary, and so would appreciate any information you might share, whether it be people who may have known Wilson, written materials, recordings, photos or footage.
Thank you in advance; we can be contacted at marshallcrenshaw1 aol. I think it includes some of the best performances of any of the Zappa-themed CDs I have compiled thus far - as well as amazing artwork!
Sadly, it seems to have come and gone relatively unnoticed, and I would hate for our next collaboration to go the same way. Most of the Sons Of Mr. Green Genes are now in, and I can tell thee it's sounding pretty awesome too. For those of you who care, it should be available in time for Moo 3. Look here and here. He recently talked about this and the origins of the current family spat during an emotional WTF interview with Marc Maron.
Is that why my dad stayed away so much of the time? But when, we ask?

The package will be released on 24 June [Added: So glad that Gail got all the profits from those shitty ZPZ mugs that the lettering fell off after a couple of washes.
I am now informed that the orchestra will be joined by a rock band. Scoremeister Kurt Morgan now provides us with a little more info: Remember, if we don't sell enough to break-even by Halloween, it won't happen. Go buy a few here. It consists of two complete shows from the Tyrone Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, recorded on stereo reel-to-reel on 5 July For the tracklist and more, go here.

Several Euro dates now in the Diary. All the arrangements are original. Original and crazy artwork, as usual, by Antero Valerio.
This is one that you don't want to miss. Hope to see you there! A lot of it is about my time with Zappa, so you FZ fans are gonna love it! I also talk about my experiences with Giorgio Moroder, Robby Krieger and much more. It is available from Amazon. The Raven Hall in Corby has been booked again, and a discounted rate for 60 rooms in nearby hotels has been negotiated.
Keep your eyes on www. Hope to see as many of you as possible there! This is stuff that Joe Travers has already been working to protect and digitize So what are you waiting for? He enjoyed reading my words and I'm sure you all will too.
It was such a trip for me going back 40 years and beyond to the night when I met Frank and even as far back as when I first heard his music. The Movie is being screened in London on 5 April: He appears to have found out. Read more about it here.

The film that Thorsten has made provides a new way for old and new Frank Zappa fans to discover more about FZ — in his own words. Ed Mann and The Grandmothers will appear on the Main stage. Confirmation or otherwise as soon as. Band leader Zap Mcinnes puts it this way: I am also enjoying the chance to further explore all the guitar parts for the first time, and the interaction between drums, sax and guitar in the solos has become something we are all quite excited about.
This version of Zappatika is, without doubt, rather more evolved than previous incarnations, something I have been trying to move towards for quite some time. All of the dates can be found in the Diary - and you can hear a sneak preview of the new line-up in rehearsal right here. Sony Pictures Classics has announced that it has acquired the worldwide rights to the film excluding France and Germany. In Reynaldo plays Zappa? Please help if you can https: Lex Bronkowiz Orchestra and Bogus Pomp!
The Resentment Listener has all this and more here. A one, a two, a one-two-three-four … [Added: Now we have two docs to look forward to. Sorta like listening to Australian Pink Floyd. Weezer should have done this. Or at least, Ryan Adams. Margaret Ann loved the Lord and gave all of the women in her church a CD of her aunt, my mother, playing the piano.
She loved her family. Dearest Mary Ann and family, my heart is breaking for you all at this sad time. Always remember the good times and know that she is in a better place. Sending hugs and prayers to you all! It was my pleasure being your babysitter so many years ago!! Megan, Charlie and Lori, and Kevin and family, your mother was a wonderful woman! She gave of herself freely. I am sure that your dad was standing at Heavens Gates with wide open arms.
I know that she will be dearly missed by you. Praying for peace and comfort. I will remember Margaret for her ready smile and hug. I appreciate the joy she shared, and her love of her family. Almost every time I met John he was either helping me or helping someone else, which in itself says a lot about who John was. Because anybody can serve.
You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love. John was a rare individual. Not only was he an intelligent man, but he was a kindhearted, loving soul with a willingness to help others.
John was a great man. He served his community well and will be deeply missed by his friends and family. Remember her well when we were neighbors growing up in Watson! Thoughts and prayers to her entire family! Jim, Julie, Jim and extended family, So sorry for your loss.
Know you have many great memories. May she rest in peace. Love, Ken and Peg. May God grant you comfort and peace. Soany wonderful memories of living across the street from you, and the wonderful years of watching our girls growing up together. With love and prayers, Madelyn.
Jim, you and your family have our sincere sympathy. Good-byes are so hard. I know Jean is fully restored, wrapped in the arms of our Lord. Blessings to all of you at this difficult time. She was quite the character! She knew her mind and I always admired that. My thoughts, fun memories, and prayers are with you all.
Thank-you so much for sending this beautiful tribute, Jennifer. I have been thinking of you all ever since I got the news. Your mom was such a sweet, gentle soul… I always enjoyed visiting with her. You are in our thoughts and prayers. I am so grateful for all of the time my family and I got to spend with Mary over the years. She always lit up the place when she was around… always smiling.
In our conversations she was always so kind and caring. We will miss her deeply. All our love to Johnny and the rest of her wonderful legacy. She was one of the most positive influences in my educational development, and in my path to a career in environmental education. John and family — so sorry to hear of your loss. Wish you all peace and comfort in the days ahead as you reflect on her memory and the great gift she was in your lives.
John and family I am sorry your Mom has passed, but also thankful she is now at peace in her eternal life. I wish you peace and you have my prayers as you pass through this difficult time. John, lean on your music and your friends. I am very sad to see this.
Mike was not only skilled at his job, but also a truly nice person. Our condolences to his family. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. Dear Loraine and Family, We send our thoughts and prayers and prayers to you and your family during this difficult time.
We always enjoyed visiting you in your home in Hudson and we remember the time we met in Arizona. You and Bob were great hosts and fun to be with.. May he rest in peace and perpetual light shine upon him. What a wonderful man who lived an incredible life. He is leaving a legacy that will be remembered for many years Bob found the perfect wife and fathered three wonderful kids. He had a great career contributing a great deal to the community and to his many many friends.
Well Bob is gone, but we have memories, memories are wonderful things you can visit them any time of the day or night, and they are always of good things.
As i sit in front of my computer the memories are filling my mind, I remember visiting the root beer stand , that is where I first met Bob, I remember the Star observer at the end of the bridge, the stories of his career with the refinery and the Erickson clan, the beautiful home he and Lorraine built, not a blade of grass out of place, the projects he built that I wished I could do. When you needed the community ladder you just called Bob, Jack Martin always claimed that he owned half of the ladder and bob only stored it for him.
I remember the Thursday golf group, I can see them sitting around the table in the bar setting the afternoon wagers. My most recent memory was stopping to see he and Lorraine in their new apartment, Nancy and IO were treated to wine and some very wonderful conversation. Memories are great and I look forward to reliving more of them with this about this wonderful friend.
You are in our thoughts. Scott Schorn and family. I am so sorry and want to extend my sympathy to you and the girls. Memories go way back to the College Campus School, where Tom was an outstanding student and had a great singing voice; H. Pinafore comes to mind. Fondly, Ellen Morrow Mattson Class of Hold close the wonderful memories you shared with him.
Many of my childhood memories include your family and the barn. We knew Margaret Hendrickson, your aunt, our neighbor and went to East Hill School with her children, quite well. My folks both died so young both 58 and you were so lucky to have your mom so long. A life well lived!!
We are glad to have known a fine man, remembered as the best manager at our Ashland Petroleum sales office. My memories of Bob, from my childhood right through to our last interaction this past January, are of a consistently positive, generous, kind, good-humored, and thoughtful gentleman.
Our world is smaller for this loss. Blessings and wishes for warm memories to Lorraine, Caroline, Nancy and John. You will all be in our thoughts and prayers. Atef was like the Bible told us in Matthew Unfortunately, after immigration distances kept us away from seeing each other but I have been always checking on his health and spoke with him few months ago and still remember the old memories during teenage time back home.
Rest In Peace Atef and remember us when you are in heaven. I volunteered with him at Hudson hospital and he was always such a bright light with his beautiful smile and great sense of humor. My prayers are with Lorraine and family.
Rest In Peace Bob. We are so sorry to hear this news. We were neighbors of Jake for many years in Vadnais Heights. He was a kind, gentle soul. I will fondly remember our driveway chats. He adored his family and spoke so highly of his siblings and loved ones. We are so sorry for your loss. I remember Penny from school, we had good laughs in the lunch room.
And so sorry for the loss of Penny. I always enjoyed talking to him at birthday parties. May his memory be eternal. Bob and Loraine are two of the finest people Carolyn and I ever knew. I am proud to have known Bob and to call him a friend. We extend our deepest sympath to the family and wish them the best. Rest In Peace my friend. It was always a pleasure to see you at the golf course. You were one of the people that when looking out at the lot of the old course window, that I knew would brighten my day!
Mark and I offer condolences and prayers to the family. Bob has gone home, but he lives on through his family. Rest in peace, God bless. You are missed terribly.
May you rest in peace. You have more than earned it! Sommers in many years but he used to come to our business quite often. Such a nice man. So so sorry for your loss. Gordy-son we were honnered to have had you in our lives,we enjoyed and appreciated your love and kindheart.
I am happy you are with your Mom now and will join you two someday. Chet, I am devastated for you. My prayers are with you, and I wish I could be at the service.
Please call just to talk. If I can be of any assistance to you and the family let me know. Paul was a dedicated professional, pillar of the community and an exceptional family man.
He was truly a role model and a personal inspiration in my life. His memory and legacy will live on through all the lives he touched. You have my deepest sympathies during this difficult time. Gordy, Your willingness to always lend a hand to others and your caring, compassionate heart will be greatly missed by all of those whose lives you touched in your time here with us. I was on a cruise and just heard about Maxine. My sympathy to the family. I will miss my friend! My prayers are with you all.
If there is anything I can do just call. Your in my thoughts and prayers. I have had the pleasure of knowing Bill and Suzy and Angie and Jessie. You must have been a beautiful spirit to have such a wonderful family. RIP Hugs from Belize. Many good memories at the farm. Will never forget you Tillie. You showed us all much love in many ways. Dave was much much more than a close friend.
Truman and Dave were more like brothers in so many ways, in how well they worked together, helped each other, and in their companionship. Gordy Gilbs, you will be sorely missed, you sardonic sense of humor and quick wit can never be replicated, love you bro, forever and always. I am saddened by the loss of Marlene. She was always welcoming to me as a friend of her daughter Brenda.
Sending thought and prayers to her family at this difficult time. Carol,Marc and Eric, we are very sorry to hear of the loss of Paul and your dad. He was a kind soul, it was an honor to have known him and all the times spent at the baseball games are treasured memories. Thoughts, prayers and blessings to all of you. Carol and family I am deeply saddened for you all. My heart breaks for you and Paul will be forever in my heart. What a kind, dear man.
Much love to you all. Dear Carol and Family — We are so sorry to hear of Pauls passing. You are in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. I worked with Debbie since She was an inspiration to many. Always had a positive attitude and kept her spirits up. What I loved most about Debbie was her faith in our Lord. She taught me much and she will be greatly missed. She is in a beautiful everlasting, eternal life now with Jesus. I am so sorry to hear this news.
I feel lucky to have known her and I have many great memories of her and with her and all of you. Our sympathies, truly, for your loss. My dear sister Kay, you will be forever loved and missed. You have finally gained your wings. Until we meet again.
My thoughts and prayers are with your family!! I worked with Bill in Menomonie 3m. He was a wonderful supervisor. I had a interview for a job with him and I came in and sat down. I told him I was a very quiet person and would sit and listen. He laughed and said you know this is your job interview and not his. Love to you and your family. Sweet Akers family, you were my favorite neighbors in Sebastopol, CA.
Some of my best memories are of spending time with you. Words cannot express how sorry I am for your loss. Bill always had a smile that warmed the heart. He was always calm even in the midst of chaos and angry bees. My wish for you is that the hole his passing leaves in your hearts be filled with the memories of a life well lived.
To Ann and Laura and Steven, My heart is with you all. My memories of Bill include a perpetual smile, always a warm and opening presence and a talent for keeping the boys entertained! From that awesome clubhouse he built with the gliding rope swing to the obstacle courses for battles. He was always so present for his children and I know my son, Nick, benefited from growing up in his company.
He gave so much to this world. I wa so surprised, shocked to read about Helen. She and my mother Harriet Christianson were close buddies. I met Helen through my mother and we quickly connected.
She was so much fun, so interesting to talk to. I had lunch with Helen, Audrey, and Marlene late in Novemeber. We had fun sharing memories of my Mom and of their memories of life before Wintergreen. Each of those ladies was full of life and wonderful stories. I will miss talking to Helen and miss her emails. I will treasure the little cards she had sent me, all stitiched with those little arthritic hands.
A dear sweet lady. Love you so much Kay. You will always be my big sister. You always had the biggest heart and the most loving. Ann, Laura and Stephen, my heart is hurting for your heartbreak. Let the tears you shed stand witness to your love for your husband and father and to the depth of your thanksgiving for the gift of his life.
May He Rest In Peace. I had the honor of knowing Billy through my brother in law Paul Rose. What an awesome, kind, personable, and good hearted person Billy was. Thank you Paul Rose for bringing him into our lives. I will miss Helens smile. I was one of the Sunday church leaders from the Methodist Church. It was always so nice seeing Harriet Christensen and her come to services. I visited with her many times. She was a wonderful lady and special friend to my mom, Mugs Zillmann, when both resided at Wintergreen.
They are now together in heaven. My heartfelt condolences to the entire Krogseng family. From all I have read, it seems as though Dan had quite an impact in his community and was blessed with a beautiful family.
My prayers go out to them and the entire family. Heaven got an awesome fun lady. We enjoyed spending time with her whether it was having lunches or playing cards. Will always think of her fondly. Bless her heart and soul. Isaiah and Family, I am so deeply sorry for your loss and the terrible heart break you all must be feeling right now.
Please except my condolences and know that my family and I will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. From the obituary, I can tell he never changed. I know you all are incredibly close and he will be deeply missed. You all are in my heart and prayers. My hope is together you will find the strength to get through this difficult time. Love to all, Dawn. I am at a loss for words. Danny has been a long time inspiration to me and a person I can call a true friend.
As we grew older and took different paths we still found time to stay connected. We would talk about guitars plus some other things, but most importantly about how proud we were of our families. Danny will always will be a very proud family man and a great friend. I will always cherish the fun and crazy things we did together.
My heart goes out to you all. My sympathies go out to the family of mike although I have never met them in person I had talked with mike about his family on the tail gate of our trucks. I only got to work with him for s few years now but a great guy and will miss him on our job sites.
Jeff howe construction in siren. Our deepest sympathies go out to your family. Dear Jodie, Emily, Leah and Daniel— We are so sorry for the loss of your husband and father— prayers and love are being sent! Lora and Bryan Bierbrauer. After working together so many years we think of him more as a friend than a business associate. He was dependable, fair, caring and always left you with a smile. He will be missed. May love bring you comfort and time bring you peace. Dear Beth and to your daughter, Catalina and also to the Anderson and Wiberg families, You have my deepest heartfelt sympathy.

Our prayers to Beth and family. So sorry for your loss. Prayers for you all. Please know that you and your family are in my prayers. May God give you peace and heal your broken heart. I had fun talking with your dad at the North Hudson Car Show occassionally. All the best wishes. Garth and Jennifer Vander Vorst.
I have no words, Beth. Peggy was a truly wonderful person! She let me boss Bernard around when I was his town clerk! She always had a beautiful smile. I am so sorry I am living in Texas and cannot make her funeral.
She and the family are in my prayers! We all are so saddened bye the loss of such an outstanding Father, husband, son, brother, nephew and cousin. May almighty God give us all the strength to get through these difficult times. He will be missed by us all. We love you all!!! What a beautiful lady in every way. When I think of her the word gracious comes to mind. Obituary painted a picture of what a special lady she was.
What a fabulous lady, even more so after reading her amazing life story. We will miss her smile. She was a great, loving, caring Aunt. Always welcoming and warm! Our prayers and good wishes are with you all! Rich, Michele and girls. Your mom will always be remembered for her smile, huge heart and all the help and time she gave to 4-H. May your memories lift you up in the coming days. Tom was Mayor when I first started working for the City of Hudson.
It was my pleasure to have known Tom not only as Mayor but as a role model. Rest in peace Tom. It was a privilege to have known Tom during my lifetime. May all of your family and friends find solace by grieving together and remembering you with smiles and tears on our faces, laughter in the air and love in our hearts.
Leanne, John a d family you are in our hearts and prayers. Sally and Lance Hermann. Jeanne, Mark and I offer our most sincere condolences to you at this difficult time.
We will keep you in our prayers. We are glad we got to know and spend time with Tom. He was a pleasure to be around and will be missed. You could always count on him for a laugh when we visited.
A personal memory of mine, Tom would make our trips to the gun range a great experience with several calibers and configurations to choose from. He loved to sling some lead down range. I am sad that we will not be able to make the services. You are all in our hearts and we are sending virtual hugs. I just saw this today. There are many memories with the Boumeester clan. I am so sorry for you loss and pray the happy memories soon override the sad ones! Tom was a wonderful man and I am glad I got to know him!
I will miss hearing his voice in our calls! Love always, cousin Dawn. My deepest condolences to the family and friends of Arthur. Please accept my condolences as you mourn the loss of your dear Arthur. Be assured that not only is almighty God keenly aware of your plight, he will indeed remedy all suffering on earth including death, as this video link clearly shows:.
Nate, my sympathies to you and your family. It sounds like your grandpa was full of life and fun. She had angels in her early life, to boost that inner strength and fierce determination to overcome the time, place, and circumstances of her birth.
During summers on the Larkins farm, Grandma L taught her the essential non-school lessons that became building blocks for her strongest values. Donna and a handful of other high school girlfriends included and accepted her. And that guy who sat behind her in junior year history class: Todd and family our prayers are with you.
May your memories lift you up on the coming days. So sorry for the loss to the whole Anderson family. I grew up with John and Jim, played hockey, got into trouble, and had the sweetest fort in their garage rafters where we spent countless hours. John was a natural hockey player with God given talent and always wondered what he could have done with that.
Rest in Peace John! My deepest love to Micki, Candy, Todd and Corey on the loss of their great husband and father. I believe it was the summer of when my family was without a place to live for many months.
Showing the ultimate demonstration of love for friends in need, the Places offered for us to come and live with them while we were without a home. Who would do that? The entire Place family treated us with great respect and consideration during our plight; and never complained about us infringing upon their space and imposing on their lives. God rest your soul, dear friend. I know that you are already looking down on us from your rightfully-deserved place in heaven. Much love to all, Garry Landowski Houston, Texas.
I am so very sorry for your loss, Micki and family. I pray your special memories will be a comfort to you. God Bless you all. When I moved to Hudson many years ago, one of the first people I looked forward to meeting was Bill, the stories and his reputation preceded him and he did not disappoint.
He lived up to his most appropriate nick name without question. Bill was bigger than life itself always smiling and bringing cheer to those whom he came into contact with. He leaves a tremendous legacy of family, friends, and loved ones. He will live on in a happier place and be remembered by all.
God Bless rest in peace. Thoughts and prayers for family members who all loved Bill so much. Jeanie and family, Our thoughts and prayers are with you. May your memories lift you up in the days to come. Blessings Zane and Deb. May you finally be at peace and pain free.
