let's face it -
Dweezil really busted his ass and reinvented himself on many levels to pull off ZPZ at the super perfecto high quality level that it has achieved.
Frank would be so FUCKING PROUD of the attention to detail and standard that the dweez has maintained.

Dude is playing/doubling vibraphone lines that were never designed to be played on the guitar.

I am 100% positive that if Frank were alive he would tell Ahmet and Diva to step the fuck back and stop this BS because it REEKS of putrified greed and stupidity.
Also it's no coincidence that a half baked failed "comedian" and a "crochet expert" ie - the least talented siblings of the clan are the first to start this shit.
Gail taught Ahmet to be a total cock and Diva the family mascot is now an official douchebag.
Good going kids.

Maybe ...just maybe this will open the door to IKE COMING BACK into the fold.
We can only hope.........

Certainly not. You are obviously living in the past.

No...you're thinking of Jethro Tull.

Celebrity net worth sites list Frank's net worth at $40 million, Gail's at $20 million, Dweezil's at $3 million, Moon's and Ahmet's at 1.5 million. I didn't find anything listed for Diva. In a normal inheritance the assets would be liquidated and sold with the heirs (children) dividing the estate evenly. Since the ZFT is ongoing and still a business, I guess all the kids have an equal share of it. I don't know if they can draw anything from it or not. I would imagine Ahmet and Diva get a salary of some sort as the trustees.

I think everyone needs to calm down. It's simply a matter of business and law. The ZFT is it's own venture, whilst the 4 kids have their own separate ventures (and should be kept that way). Ahmet and Diva are running the ZFT business. Dweezil is performing FZ's material on his own behalf, not for the ZFT. Dweezil's venture is not, nor ever was part of the ZFT.

Here's my take on the Kickstarter:

1. AW got legal approval, he can do what he wants for the doc and the backers.
2. Joe works for ZFT first, then hired by DZ to play in his band. I'm assuming there was some sort of conflict of interest / job priorities along the way and Joe had to leave DZ.
3. I'm a FZ fan first and foremost. I supported the campaign because as a fan and consumer, I want more FZ material available. For me, the quicker, the better. I do appreciate the fact that DZ took it upon himself to tour FZ's music. I like seeing FZ's material performed live more than I like the fact that DZ is performing it. The double whammy is cool, but if 'Joe Blow' performs it just as well (or better) than DZ, I'd see that first.

I'm also saddened by the fact that there is conflict in this whole melee, but you can't circumvent the law when it is difficult to leave your feelings out of the equation. That's my two cents.

tiboudre, the voice of reason, moderation and sanity. Not the average self-righteous judgmental opinion that smells of envy. Just wish 'em well and reconciliation, not this fucking celebrity gossip atmosphere. Family, family, business apart, with good sense, always.

BINGO

Howard is funny for about 10 minutes.
Then he will say something that is so stupid, demonstrating the immense vapidity of his intellectual depth and it becomes clear why he has such a broad audience [of sheeple]

Howard always had immensely shitty taste in music/art/culture. If it made money and was popular: It Was Good. If Not: It was for Losers. That was/is his criteria.

Pretty sure he said he liked what Frank stood for but couldn't listen to the music.

Of course I don't really know what I am talking about as I haven't heard Howie since 12/16/2005, his last day on radio.

Moon Zappa in reply to @KenBane1
nicely worded. Exclusion as protection? Alienation as honoring? Um... P.S. the opposite of our father's will - that story later...

I think this is a really shit situation for DZ and it is retarded on many levels that he can't even use FZ's likeness in the shows or on merch. Having said that I'm still 100% happy that I donated to the Kickstarter. I'm backing Alex, Joe, the documentary and saving the vault first and foremost.

I hope the family sorts their dumb shit out and acts like a family should. I would imagine Frank would be disgusted with his kids falling out over his musical legacy.

Did they fall out over FZ's musical legacy or did they fall out over money?
