DZ fb studio update

Yesterday we recorded the Master take for "Dragon Master." It's a super heavy Iron Maiden style rocker. It sounds like there is an enormous Dragon swinging his tail around the studio. For those unfamiliar, Dragon Master is the only co-write I ever got to do with my dad. He wrote the lyrics in 1986. I can't wait for you all to hear them!


Maybe sooner then we think!

DRAGON MASTER
DRAGON MASTURBATE
DRAGON MASTURBATED
DRAGON MASTURBATED ON MY FACE

Always wanted to hear this one. Did the 88 band ever record it?

I just cannot imagine FZ writing anything like that... just like that love song somebody posted on the Goose aeons ago FZ allegedly wrote for Gail. Makes me wonder about all the lyrics he made that he eventually deemed not suitable.

It's like when they find a painting by a well known artist that is completely different than his normal work, with great artist it does happen.

Hell Bonny your very creative, haven't you occassionally done something that was totally outside your normal process?

I know it was co-wrote with Dweezil but I'm not too sure who wrote what.

Also this intrigues me. Any link to said love song?

I don't care WHO wrote those lyrics, I am offended.
Not only are they childish, they just... THINK ABOUT IT! A dragon masturbating on a face!!!???!!!
This doesn't even happen in cartoons.

Not only that, this type of thing would probably burn your face off.

Even in my gloom days I gravitate towards the silly. In writing and drawing at least. With music it depends on what I have in my hands most. There's one particular flute I have that can only be used to play Dragnet.

That's not a love song, Trip. http://packardgoose.ploeg.ws/interactive/forums/Files/viewthread.php?tid=40&page=2#pid637
I cannot vouch for its source whatsoever - in fact I strongly doubt FZ wrote it.

Incorrect. It's by Frank & Dweezil Zappa.

DZ gave us a little tease of the vocal tracks on his facebook page. The vocals are very 'Lancelotti' like.

I too, really look forward to hearing this "heavy metal" Zappa song!

Thank you to everyone for your support for my "Via Zamatta' " album. I'm currently on tour with Zappa Plays Zappa until mid May. The record is in mix down mode. I am excited to share it with you when it's all finished! FYI we are playing the full version of "Dragon Master" over the PA before each concert.

OK, so I did hear this unfamiliar piece of music on the first night thru the PA before show. I thought to myself this might be "Dragonmaster". I'll give it a fair assessment when I hear it again in complete form. It just sounded VERY '80s "guitar hero" to me, but with a memorable hook. Like it could have fit in on any Satriani, Vai, or Eric Johnson album from 1988.

That's kind of the idea isn't it. It's supposed to be an '80's metal dungeons and dragons (Dio, Ozzy, etc.) parody of sorts with Dweezil doing the music (and he was listening to a lot of that type of music back then) and FZ's tongue in cheek lyrics. Sounds like fun to me.
