Return of the Son of Shut Up 'n Play Yer Guitar: Dweezil Zappa
By Bill Kohlhaase, pp 36-37

Frank Zappa left behind a huge canon of music when he died in 1993 — some of it irreverent ("It‘s a Good Thing We Get Paid to Do This"), much of it involved, inventive, and challenging, for performers as well as fans. His son, Dweezil Zappa, a guitarist of no small means, has studied all the notes and now recreates his father's music, among other musical adventures. On Wednesday, Feb. 12, the Dweezil-fronted Zappa Plays Zappa projects performs Frank's celebrated 40-year-old recording Roxy & Elsewhere at the Greer Garson Theatre on the campus of the Santa Fe University of Art & Design.
