Dweezil Zappa in the studio

Dweezil Zappa talks to Stuart about his current Zappa Plays Zappa tour which, as the name suggests, is Dweezil playing the music of his father, Frank Zappa.

In this extensive interview Dweezil shares memories of a childhood growing up around guitar giants Steve Vai and Eddie Van Halen; his first time on stage with Frank aged 12; and he also explains why his dad could have been the President of the United States of America.
