Been watching this over several days, interesting stuff, especially about the live music industry, doesn't sound particularly glamorous but very risky, financially. Really appreciate both of you and I'm hoping to have the opportunity to purchase a copy of "What the hell was I thinking"

I had tickets, for me, my wife and daughter at the Perth Western Australia show, was really looking forward to it, then I heard about the tour cancellation, the Terry Town show and then the lock downs started........great interview/conversation by the way


Thank you for explaining how the music business works (or not) these days. I am interested in supporting artists not social media or record companies. I was buying CDs and attending concerts, but somehow that doesn’t seem like enough. I am not a guitar player but I have always been fascinated with the creative process, so that discussion was fun too.

I love your concerts playing your father’s music but I would like to hear your stuff too!

Thanks for posting this interview, Dweezil. So interesting hearing your accounts about growing up in the Zappa household as a budding musician!

Enjoyed this! I would say that I am seeing more " subscription based " mentalities lately ( where Joe and DZ talk about the 36:00 minute mark ).


For example, next to more musicians using platforms such as Reward Music or even Pateron, I've been in touch with a few managers/chefs in restaurants ( especially in the Northern California area ) who are creating their own platforms for monies from certain demographics. For example, my wife and I ( while celebrating our anniversary dinner last night at a top end restaurant ) were invited to participate in a group dinner ( consisting of five or more people ) at this restaurant where each person contributes $40.00 each and the result is a much bigger dinner/desert menu choices. After hearing about this dinner platform, it sounds like more people ( especially in the Sacramento area where I reside ) are participating in these groups. Despite the challenges the pandemic has all thrown us, I can definitely see more folks buying specific products where these same people participate in platforms for specific content. 


I wish there was a way to inspire people further into these platforms in such a way that it could actually change the way we do commerce.
