There was something very special about Frank's guitar solos...

According to Wiki


In January 2012, he pleaded guilty to a charge of continuous sexual abuse of a female family member younger than 14 which happened in March 2008. In the plea bargain agreement, he was sentenced to 25 years in prison and is not eligible for parole.

I have no interest in this what so ever. As well as the never ending releases of live shows. Enough already.

So went to opening night of the Bizarre World of Zappa show last night. While the musicians and songs sounded amazing I thought the show was garbage. It was only four songs of Hologram Zappa and the rest cheesy animation(Montana was an animated dental floss turning into images like the outline of Montana plus animated Zappa on a horse). Other songs were using old concert footage but one song they just showed images of the band and no Zappa. Other times it was Zappa playing guitar but no footage. Then Ahmed came on and sang bad vocals and thanked band. No photos or videos allowed and saw they stopped anyone- however hightea did take some bad video

Went to the Palladium last night to see the Hologram show - Meh, felt quite odd and the hologram seemed quite static and cartoony. Worst part was that we had seats 6 rows from the front but right at the end of the row. The hologram is set back from the front of the stage and when it appeared in the first song we couldn't actually see it! Decided to stand at the back so that we could see the show properly and were directed to sit down as there were some empty seats at the back. Not happy though after paying top dollar for down the front and ending up at the back. A stiff letter will be on it's way to the Palladium!

yeah I noticed at my show that the people up front on the side had to either stand or move to see Zappa. Luckly I had 6th row center, however agree it was a shit show with crappy non-hologram cartoon-like images of Zappa. Plus it was only four songs of Zappa anyway.
