Dweezil Zappa was born on September 5, 1969 in Los Angeles the son of Frank and Gail Zappa.
Having primarily heard the music his father was working on or listening to at home while growing up, Dweezil soon found himself exposed to some new sounds on the radio. Besides his father's music he began listening to the Beatles, Queen, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, The Who and Jimi Hendrix. Like many aspiring guitarists of his generation, Dweezil's ear was caught in a stranglehold by the trailblazing guitar styles of Edward Van Halen and Randy Rhoads.
November 27th 2015 saw the release of Dweezil's first new album since "Go With What You Know" in 2006. Dweezil Zappa returned to his musical roots with his new CD release "Via Zammata". Fusing analog tape and tube guitar amps alongside surprising instruments such as fretless guitar and the oud, Zappa draws you into his intimate, and multifarious musical world. Armed with unexpected vocal arrangements that sound like the Beach Boys procreated with the Bulgarian Women's Choir, this collection of 12 uniquely orchestrated songs represents a true metamorphosis for Dweezil Zappa the solo artist. The album was produced and arranged by Dweezil Zappa and features songwriting collaborations with Frank Zappa and venerable actor John Malkovich.
The current band lineup is Dweezil's favorite so far. "This is the best version of the band I have ever had. The musicians are able to tackle the hardest instrumental passages and cover a limitless range of vocals."
Dweezil's most recent album release (2018) is "Live In The Moment II," a guitar solo complialtion record in the style of his father's "Shut Up And Play Yer Guitar" discs. Live solos interspersed with studio tracks and interstitial pallette cleansers.
