This is how American politics goes
1 Republicans cut tax, let everything run down to barely working...8 years
2 Democrats fix public spending to normal...8 years
Rinse, repeat.

Kids still fighting due to Gail being weirdo and splitting estate to favor younger kids.

:lou:
In April, Dweezil received a letter from the trust saying he would be in violation of trademark laws if he used the name Zappa Plays Zappa. "There were cease-and-desist letters for so many bands that were trying to play Frank's music," says Dweezil. "And then I get one." To avoid potential legal action, Dweezil decided to change the name of his tour to 50 Years of Frank: Dweezil Zappa Plays Whatever the F@%k He Wants – The Cease and Desist Tour. "

Anybody ever see a picture of Zappa driving a regular car?
Frank often worked vampire hours, and because he didn't like to drive, Moon says Gail would wake the children in the middle of the night at their seven-bedroom home in Laurel Canyon to pick up Frank from a rehearsal.
at Zappa.com
Frank owned a few nice cars. i heard the same thing, his licence expired, and he stopped driving.(1967)

Just read the article about the kids feuding over his estate/legacy. Damn shame. I saw the Zappa plays ZAppa show about five years ago. Dweezil was really very good.

Zappa disc, or 2 discs?

The end track is Strictly Genteel. They can't have the classic 200 Motels version with Theo Bikel.
