  3. I drove up to Va. (Grayson Highlands - Mt. Rogers) and hiked up and back (called a loop) roughly 10 miles. Mt. Rogers is the highest point in Va. Yep, those are wild ponies!! Thought I'd post this because Kate was unsure what "hiking" was!! :)

  5. the t-shirt must be finished on both sides and the country of each member on the outside of the shoulders of the vest, on the back side the new logo select and on the front side the name of the players at the top right and in top left the name of the clan later we can talk about money

  6. Combining Kate's logo with the official logos I thought that maybe we could put, at the front of the shirt, Kate's logo and the "W" of wolfenstein, and at the back, we can put our ingame names and the wolfenstein at the bottom

  8. @ BEDARIUS: SUPERTRAMP SOUND CHALLENGE FOR YOU! ITEMS NEEDED >> 1. LP (Record/Vinyl): Breakfast in America 2. CD: Breakfast in America 3. Turntable 4. CD Player LISTEN AND COMPARE THE LP to the CD! My Personal Pick: The LP Version! @ BEDARIUS: You said that you played piano so, here's some stuff to glance over. THE BLACK PAGE #1 (PIANO SOLO): Originally composed as a drum solo, this is the piano solo version The drum solos are on Zappa - Live in New York as Black Page #'s 1&2 if you want to hear those solos. The name comes from there being so many combined drum/percussive notes that the music sheets were black. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rVqpxFBHAHc The Adventures Of Greggery Peccary Don't let the cartoonish vocal effects and story throw you. There's some crazy complicated music in this song to be sure! It's also pretty funny! The 'Big Swifty' portion of the song even uses an electric IBM typewriter for rapid percussive rhythms that are tight-tight-tight. It's just great! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aymj5wcIhiY Various ZAPPA PIANO/SYNTH/ SYNCLAVIER Selections https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZUCHBgqJJM&list=RDdZUCHBgqJJM&start_radio=1&rv=dZUCHBgqJJM&t=15 @ BIER and TOPCAT: Sooooo, we have some George Duke fans in the house... GROOVY! By the way, Ruth Underwood dropped out of Julliard to join Franks band! I love her! Anyway, I have a couple of things for you guys to look over surrounding George Duke. Just some things I threw together that may be good. George was, in my view, THE best keyboard player that ever sat in with Frank. George had the conservatory/classical chops (training) AND a really great sense of humor as well. Frank really loved that about George. They were friends for sure! Here are some clips that hopefully will make you think, make you laugh and/or twist your brain into noodles wondering,"HOW THE FUCK CAN A HUMAN PLAY THIS STUFF?" George Duke on Frank Zappa! George Duke talks about how he started playing with Zappa. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ERFUbX648S4 Frank Zappa - RDNZL (studio version) Beautifully produced and so very complicated! WOOF! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZlwLNcBD68k FUNNY! Smell My Beard (Original Version) The Booger Man (Original Version) Including... -Marty Perellis (FZ's Road Manager) -George Duke (Keyboards and Story Teller) Re. Funny Moment On The Road Surrounding Marty Perellis For fun, the boys had a routine thing that they did on tour called 'Moontrek' where Frank would just let Napoleon Murphy Brock and George Duke cut up and jive talk. On this night, they broke away from that and told a very funny story about their road manager Marty Perellis. There's a lot of stage/crowd laughter going on during this story. There's a rule. A BIG rule and that is you NEVER give out the real names of groupies. While telling this story George begins to mention the gals but, in the background, just before he can say anything else you can here a "hey!" to remind him of the no name rule. George is then being fed made up names to use by one of the band members in the background which, is pretty funny to hear. Even they crack up. So, the girls in the story become Ms. Cool, Ms Jewel and, Ms Stool. So, here's George Duke's story and song about Zappa's road manager and his hotel adventures. Smell My Beard (Original Version) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJqJd_WpKls -INTO-- The Booger Man (Original Version) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJ2CivShsgI And now, the wonderful RUTH UNDERWOOD! Rollo / Ruth Underwood and Zappa https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FrdjkdS_qY8

  9. George Duke was one of the best keyboard players in Zappa's band, I think. Or was it Bobby Martin, or Alan Zavod? Just to say there's a lot of great keyboard passages and solo's in Franks music too... Check them on youtube, when you're bored... :-)

  17. They have been playing together for a long time. George is credited a lot in Zappa's work. You can see him on keyboard and vocals in the Inca Roads clip in my earlier post.

  19. Luis, For the earlier period I recommend: Filmore East, June 71 Overnite Sensation Apostrophe One Size Fits All The middle period: Sheik Yerbouti Joe's Garage ACTS I, II & III You Are What You Is Ship Arriving Too Late To Save A Drowning Witch Man from Utopia Also 'You Can't Do That On Stage Anymore vol. 1, 2 and 3' live albums gives you quite a feel what it was to be at a Frank Zappa concert! Enjoy!

  20. Correct! And I want it to fade in just before the last sentence: ...and quietly plays his last imaginary guitar solo.... You Can't Do That On Stage Anymore Vol 1... Just one of my favorites... From 'The Florida Airport Tape' which still makes me smile, 'Sofa #1 and #2, and of course 'The Torture Never Stops'. Don't want to stop there because everything rocks on it! And it's through these compilation disks I regressed back to the earlier work a bit easier... And the atmosphere it breathes, and the quality of those old recordings due to Franks genius insight to record practically every(!) concert he ever gave in digital form, way before anybody else was doing that. No degradation over time, all still in excellent quality! One size fits all, Apostrophe, Overnight Sensation I all learned to know them later on. Jean-Luc Ponti, Napoleon Murphy Brock, and ofcourse Ruth Underwood. With her lightning fast percussion probably the only person to play Franks compositions with confidence! Love Her! Even at the end, when he got more and more politically active, the music was still great, but the lyrics got a little to political for me. It had less connection to the European fans because of that. But if you have heard all of the earlier work, it's clear that had to happen sometime...

  21. Experimental Rock I love at that time all the bands were experimental, they all varied in genres even in the same song. But I had no knowledge of Frank Zappa usually when it comes to that era they always talk about the British invasion and its importance in the music scene. But where do I start, what song or album do you recommend? Bedarius you are a man of many interesting things.

  24. If I remember correctly, it was Watermelon in Easter Hay. There is a cut on You Can't Do That On Stage Anymore Vol 1 that has Flo and Eddie doing "The Groupie Routine" which is great ha ha. "AWWWW! You know David Cassidy?! You Guys!!! You guys are our FAVORITE band! So are you in Hollywood long?" Ha ha I think I feel where you are coming from. Let's just say that you left off where the Flo and Eddie era was coming to an end. It all REALLY ended when Frank was knocked off stage in London >>> https://ultimateclassicrock.com/41-years-ago-frank-zappa-pushed-off-stage-in-london/ that put him on the sidelines for quite sometime. From a wheelchair, he made records and wrote music and had auditions for and rehearsals with his new lineup for about a year or so. Then in 73 /74 he introduced the world to the new Mothers of Invention lineup. THAT'S THE BEST PLACE FOR YOU TO START. The 73/74 George Duke/Ruth Underwood era. The movie AND the cd/lp of "The Roxy and Elsewhere" (recorded live at The Roxy in LA 1973) is freaking great too .
