After reading this last night I cranked an old bass solo from Let's Move To Cleveland. The show was on Sept. 1st,1984 in Saratoga Springs,NY. A long time ago ZappaPenguin was praising it in a thread, so I grabbed it. It's the first thing that pops into my head when I think of Scott Thunes...

I'd like to see a Scott-penned memoir of this tour. Perhaps a Kickstarter project? Or would people object?

Yes. Ed Mann, probably.

If, in any event, Scott decided to publish-and-be-damned, he could call it "I, Thunes".

I'd object - we've already got one kickstarter fundraiser going on on this board - I don't want anything to divert attention from that

I don't think one can divert attention from that. Very Happy

Hi Scott,

Could you tell us if the project of FZ with Flo & Eddie in the tour 1988 would include the brass section ? or FZ decided to choose them once Flo & Eddie didnīt agreed to be in the band.

And what really happened with Ray White who dissapeared?

And the last one, if you rehearsed with different musicians that later didnīt toured with the band. Which ones ?

Thank you in advance. Exclamation

Thank you Scott, your reminiscences are always worth reading, regardless of the medium.

Long may you regale us.

BTW if you had your say which '88 show would be your pick for a release?

As far as I can work out from the available evidence, the chronology seems to have been something like this:

early pre-88 rehearsal lineup: FZ, Ike, Ray, Tommy, Robert, Ed, Scott, Chad, Flo & Eddie (Robert Martin seems not to have been present at some early rehearsals, but perhaps he was occupied somehow and expected to join later.)

- Flo & Eddie leave
- Tommy leaves, FZ begins considering using a brass section
- Ray White disappears
- Mike Keneally joins (MK has said it wasn't certain yet when he joined that Ike was to be in the band, which Ike disputes. Ike does seem to have been present at the rehearsal with Flo & Eddie circulating on tape, and F&E have also mentioned Ike being there.)
- brass section joins

Of course, I would enjoy any alternate views from Scott.

I think Frank tried to get Warren Cuccurullo or Steve Vai but both were busy at the time as well.

Didn't Chester also say that Frank wanted him to tour in 1988?
