Dweezil Zappa plays “Peaches en Regalia”

How does one describe Frank Zappa?  I had a Zappa fixation back in my college days circa 1969-1973 and sort of drifted away from it after that formative period in my life.  He was a musical iconoclast whose influences ran the gamut from cultural trash to the most refined musical tastes.  He music was progressive, experimental, touched with sarcasm and humor.  His output was prodigious.  One album that is forever etched in my mind is Hot Rats which was issued in 1969, and featured the instrumental “Peaches en Regalia”. The album was dedicated to Zappa’s newborn son Dweezil, …and so, here is Dweezil Zappa performing “Peaches en Regalia”, almost 40 years after Hot Rats was released by his father, Frank Zappa (1940-1993).
