Third one bites the dust. Shame, Jamie was really great. Solid performance every time.

Now there's a guitarist who really has his own style.

That's a couple of huge blows for Dweezil. It's not the first time that someone has left just before a tour. I wonder wussup with dat? I'd love be a fly on the wall......

I agree with him, though; he did improve a lot while with the band. He seemed a bit tentative at first, but became a bigger presence as the years went by. Wonder who'll replace him?

Dweezil won't be bringing Steve Vai or Mike Keneally in to cover...

But it's pretty much a perpetual tour for ZPZ, isn't it? It's not like they take long periods of time off from the road in order to write and record studio albums. Sooner or later, the road burns everyone out.

"Touring can make you crazy" :P

So is anyone else on the way out to actually make it a five piece?

Is this music possible without a percussionist?

The bands without percussion were not nearly as good as those with it. Out of 22 shows I attended, my least favorite was the 5 piece from the Zoot era. It just didn't sound right without vibes/marimba. That's a signature sound.

So very true.But they (the five piece band) were more guitar orienated and FZ has a signiture guitar sound for that to.I like the percussion better too.It gives it so much more texture.imho. 8)
