ps but what really did happen with the Z-Kid court date of the scheduled November, 2017 meet?


Last week Dweezil said, "there have been some discussions of engaging in settlement talks" - so they're hopefully now moving in the right direction.


That's good as long as everyone walks away unhappy. Then it's fair!
Thanks for the heads up.

youtubes popping up of Dio Hologram shows. The stage is so bare. It looks really sad. The "hologram" seems to have issues, too. Maybe it's just the way it was captured on a cheap phone vid? I wonder if rockin' mood lighting and stage smoke wd interfere with the projection?

Also, according to a post on Dweezil's website, the Zappa siblings have apparently kissed and made up.

The link above includes the statement in full from Dweezil's website, but also mentions that Ahmet had wanted DZ to participate in the hologram tour.

If that happened, one wonders if DZ's participation would sway any of the fans in their polarized opinion of this hologram business.

Still, at the very least, it's good they've agreed to move forward without the public statements to each other and dirty laundry airings.

Everyone involved in the project seems to be very positive about it. Proper rehearsals don't start until January 2019, so we should have a much clearer idea of how it will be after that.

As has been commented on many times here, it will never have the FZ spontaneity, crowd participation or improv of a real show. The band will need to be totally in sync with FZ every night. But that would suit Dweezil. His attention to detail and knowledge of Frank's playing techniques could also be a major contribution to the creating of the hologram. Perhaps even be the body double? If only he smoked!

Both Ahmets holo project and Dweezil's touring are intended to honour their father, so it would make a lot of sense for both things to compliment each other.

I agree. They should both contribute equally: 60/40...

Last week a new episode of "Kulturpalast" on 3sat was announced. The main topic was the 200th Frankenstein anniversary, Further announced content: "2018 is now the year in which dead pop stars are back on the stage: Roy Orbison! Frank Zappa! Entertainer Harald Juhnke! Hologram technology and new computer capacity make it possible - Even Abba want to send her young "Abbatare" on tour soon. "

Today was the 30-minute broadcast on 3sat. The only thing that was shown then about Frank Zappa was directly at the beginning of the show a montage, which was then shown for a few seconds (see screenshot)

I honestly expected a bit more - maybe a little sneak preview of the current hologram preparations.

From Billie Holiday, a 20-second sequence of Hologram USA was shown. Then a few very short sequences by Michael Jackson and Ronnie James Dio.

Pity!
