I have that show on disc, if yer interested, Jedi. When I get your package, assuming it has a return-address on it, I'll pop it out to ya if you want!
Then you can REALLY kick yourself in the ass!!!
Favorite album--pick one only--- JOE'S GARAGE. It was the first FZ album I listened to in its entirety. Dosed outta my skull at my fraternity house. I fell in love with it. The musicality of it, from the songs to how they're played. I think it's the best of the best.
Favorite show you were at? Favorite bootleg?
Never saw FZ...I regret that so badly. My favorite boot is probably either The Ahoy, Rotterdam 1980 or this great 1984 show that I cannot remember the venue at this moment....opens with Teenage Wind (missing from the recording), but then goes to Truck Driver Divorce. Has the "In France" used on YCDTOSA 3.
Best stunt guitar player?? Steve Vai. Hands down. BLOWS Keneally away, IMO. Truly, I'd put the Dweez before Keneally (eventhough he wasn't a "regular", he DID sit in quite a few times)
Favorite band/tour/era? 1976/1984, it's a tie. I just LOVE Ray White.
Best keys player? George Duke, for sure.
bass? Arthur Barrow
vocalist? Ray White, followed by Frank.
Have you seen him live? Nope...
What's the sickest thing you saw? ZPZ - it was as close as I'll ever get.
Do you trade shows?? Yup.
Do you play any Frank?! I've tried (just like you said, Tour Pro). I think we've pulled off "Bobby Brown" live pretty well with PBJ. DEFINITELY want to add Cosmik Debris to the repertoire. There is no reason why we shouldn't be playing that song. Would love to do a couple of others, too.
What's your favorite "epic" song? I'm sure your definition of "epic" is different than mine, but for me, I'd say "On The Bus"....great long jam. If you're looking for many movements, "King Kong" ain't bad, either.
What do you find most interesting, entertaining or bizarre about Frank's use of Conceptual Continuity? Can't find too many musicians who do that. It's awesome.
Favorite piece/element of CC? The Poncho.
