Dweezil Zappa Plays Whatever the F@%k He Wants!


If you’ve been in Tierra del Fuego recently, you may have missed the absolute insanity of Zappa versus Zappa in the worst-ever edition of Family Feud, wherein Ahmet and Diva instructed Dweezil Zappa (HINT: the one with the talent) to stop using HIS DAD’S NAME.

If you’re waiting to find out this is a satire site or fake news outlet, sadly, it is all too hideously real. Frank was right: “What’s the ugliest part of your body? I think it’s your mind.”


Told that he could no longer use the name which made perfect sense — Zappa Plays Zappa, Dweezil did change the name, however reluctantly. We think you’ll like the new one:

Dweezil Zappa Plays Whatever the F@%k He Wants!


Accordingly, Dweezil has launched the name with a tour with dates this month and in April and May and a new Pledge Music campaign. Dweezil explains:

I have a very special pledge music campaign that launches today! It features new music but centers on keeping the rights to the name my father gave me.

Members of my family have filed for a federal trademark to own and control the surname ZAPPA. I’m inviting you to band with me and become one of the “Others Of Intention.” If you raise your voice alongside mine in opposition to the proposed federal trademark you can help me protect my rights to use my own last name to identify myself in the field of music and entertainment. You can pledge now at http://www.pledgemusic.com/othersofintention

Available: Signed CD’s + Ltd. Ed. Vinyl, Archival Items, Signed Guitars + more!

Watch the video and find much more information on the Pledge Music link.
