From Debutante Daisy in the Breaking News thread...

John Sloatman, Gail's brother just posted on FB an hour ago, "My sister Gail passed away a few hours ago. I will miss her - An end of an era
xoxo to the kids"

:oops:

Debutante Daisy telephoned to me a few minutes ago about this. She's a friend of John Sloatman, I believe.

I took out the question mark. The internet makes me skittish about posting something about somebody's death.

Damn :shock:

My condolences to the family.

This puts the ROXY dvd in a bit of perspective.
I mean, did Gail know this would be the final thing she did ?
Was she sick ?

Not too long ago there was the deal with Universal and Ahmet taking over ''taking over the daily operations of the family business''.

As if she knew...

RIP, Mrs Zappa.

Today I buried my uncle, 200 km away, a journey I did listening to Zappa's Joe's Garage, when I got myself thinking of Gail and if she ever did vocal work on other Zappa work (listening to ALGR).

My most sincere condolences to the Zappa's. She was a great woman.

Friends on Facebook, yes...but I didn't know him in person...but the post did make the news official on the spot.

Condolences to the family and dear friends. RIP Gail

Behind every great man there is a great women,
FZ could not have done half of what he did without Gail's support and commitment.

My condolences to Diva, Ahmet, Dweezil & Moon
RIP Gail Zappa

The Zappa family is in my thoughts and prayers... :cry:

Mr.GG I read somewhere in an interview once that Gail said she sang on songs but would not reveal which ones.

It was just put on TMZ, so it will be much more widely known now.

R.I.P. Gail.

Maybe this was the cause of the delay of Dance Me This release... she wanted it to be the LAST album. :idea:

My condolences.
