It's hard to believe it but soon I'll be 50 years old. That's right folks, 50 years with the name Dweezil. I've made music under the name Dweezil starting with "My Mother is a Space Cadet" back in 1982, a song still available today. (It was secretly produced by Edward Van Halen!)
You wouldn't think there would be other individuals who also have my name but I have met several over the years. People spell it differently too. I saw one spelled like this - Dweez'l. Oddly enough, I 've met more than one Dweezil in Belgium. Some people have made the judgement that it is/was cruel for my father to name a child Dweezil. It was never a problem for me growing up. (My last name is another story.) It's a bit surreal but as my dad once said, "Consider the beauty of a name like Ralph."
The Hot Rats Live Tour begins in a few weeks. See you on tour.
