The late great Frank Zappa is coming back,… as a hologram.
Some folks in the Zappa Family are already talking about possible set lists, with plans in the works to stage “Joe’s Garage: The Musical”, easily one of Zappa’s most legendarily filthy works with the Zappa hologram starring as, who else, the Central Scrutinizer.
Also planning to join him are Zappa staples like Adrian Belew, Steve Vai, Mike Keneally, Vinnie Colaiuta and Warren Cuccurullo.
Having never seen Zappa live before, this is a show I’d likely drop money to go so see not just for the chance to listen to Zappa’s double album live, but to hear some of his other classics with these among my top picks to see hologram Zappa play:
How about you? What tunes would you like to see hologram Zappa play?
Hi, I'm Pete Rizzo, early morning elixir for your weekends.
I love music and I love talking about it. I grew up listening to bands like Rush (best band on the planet!), Van Halen (Diamond Dave all the way), AC/DC (Bon rules!) and Genesis (the Gabriel years). But my true love is progressive rock and heavy metal. The louder, crunchier, more bombastic and self-indulgent, the better!
When I’m not on the air, I’m either training in martial arts, deciding which tattoo I should get next, reading a good book (I still enjoy turning actual pages), or my wife and I are planning our next big travel excursion.
I’m on every Saturday and Sunday morning. You can also follow me on on Twitter @PeteRizzoWBAB. I’d love to hear from you.
