If there’s any person who has a right to perform the music of Frank Zappa and continue his legacy, it would seem to be his guitarist son, Dweezil. But as Brett Callwood noted in a recent L.A. Weekly interview with Dweezil, he’s in a bizarre legal conflict with two of his three siblings over how he should title his ongoing tributes to his prolific father’s music. So, with more than a hint of his dad’s lacerating sarcasm, Dweezil is calling his latest run of shows “50 Years of Frank: Dweezil Zappa Plays Whatever the Fuck He Wants — The Cease & Desist Tour.” In other words, he’s going to continue the loving homages he’s performed for the past decade under the name Zappa Plays Zappa, eschewing his own music while waving the family’s freak flag high.
