Playing it now, but it seems from the other podcast and the open letter he's very much looking to reconcile.

Edit:

WHOA! They listen to what they write here! :shock:

Has anyone heard the 1/1/18 interview with Ahmet on the ZappaCast? I haven't been following the ZFT "feud" (when I heard about it, I could only think, "Oh, for fuck's sake -- work it out"), so I'm curious about what you in-the-know guys think of his positive statements concerning Dweezil. Is he just dodging the subject, or can we detect the aroma of an impending reconciliation?

It's been awhile since I listened to it, but Ahmet has always been civil about this (at least publicy). Dweezil and Moon are the ones that have vented openly about their dissatisfaction with the direction of the ZFT.

They should be able to work this out, it seems Frank & Gail did a good job raising these kids, something like this trust can cause business issues in a family but in the end I expect it to be resolved amicably... :idea:

You guys are right, thankfully, as a reconciliation seems to be imminent. Ahmet was interviewed again on the last ZappaCast, and he mentioned that he and Dweezil had hung out the night before.

Dweezil Zappa Shares ‘Good News’ Post About Resolving Family Issues

May 16, 20186:24 am PDTBy Scott Bernstein

Over the past few years, brothers Dweezil Zappa and Ahmet Zappa engaged in a war of words and lawsuits that included multiple blog posts and interviews with the media. Guitarist Frank Zappa’s children were divided into two camps with Ahmet and Diva Zappa running the Zappa Family Trust (ZFT) and Dweezil and Moon Zappa on the outside looking in. The issues came to head in 2016 when Dweezil changed the name of his Zappa Plays Zappa project to avoid paying fees to the trademark holders the ZFT. Dweezil recently shared a blog post explaining the siblings have finally met to work their issues out.

“Recently, we Zappa siblings (Diva, Ahmet and Dweezil) got together with the goal of resolving our differences. Once we sat down and actually listened to one another, we found a much greater understanding of each other’s intentions,” wrote Dweezil in the post titled “Good News.” The guitarist revealed that the Zappa children “have decided to work toward privately discussing issues rather than using public forums and lawyers.”

Dweezil mentioned his hopes that those who took sides in the drama “can join us in the peace of our resolution.” He ended the note with, “Thank you for your passion and love for our father. We can assure you, we all feel the same about him.” As for now, there’s no word about whether Dweezil will participate in a planned “The Bizarre World Of Frank Zappa” hologram tour. Ahmet had previously expressed his desire for Dweezil to perform as part of the tour.

Read the full statement from DweezilZappa.com: https://www.dweezilzappa.com/posts/1983868-good-news

Recently, we Zappa siblings (Diva, Ahmet and Dweezil) got together with the goal of resolving our differences. Once we sat down and actually listened to one another, we found a much greater understanding of each other’s intentions. We regret that our communication broke down and that things were misconstrued. It may be a bumpy road at times – we are a passionate Italian family – but we have decided to work toward privately discussing issues rather than using public forums and lawyers.

We are hopeful that if any of our father’s fans have felt conflicted, they can join us in the peace of our resolution. With our best feet forward, we are moving ahead and will faithfully deliver much more of our father’s indefinable brilliance, also known as the “World’s Finest Optional Entertainment.”

Thank you for your passion and love for our father. We can assure you, we all feel the same about him.

Curious as to where DZ stands with the "Fake Frank" hologram tour now that the family is working things out. Anyone heard about this?
