Dweezil Zappa Net Worth – Under Review

Dweezil Zappa is an American musician and performer. He recorded some solo albums and played for other musicians including Winger, The Fat Boys, among others. He had a cameo role in John Hughes’s Brat Pack film Pretty in Pink. Zappa added his voice to the animated series Duckman, playing Ajax Duckman. He composed and performed the theme music for The Ben Stiller Show. In 1999, Zappa and his brother, Ahmet, starred in a show, Happy Hour, which featured stars, bands as well as a dance troupe. The show lasted for one season, though there is a copyright dispute on the name of the show. In 2006, Zappa formed the “Zappa Plays Zappa” tour, which planned to bring his dad’s music to a younger audience. Ian Donald Calvin Euclid Zappa was born on September 5, 1969 in La, California, USA.

1I didn't really hear any music other than what my dad was working on until I was twelve. My recollection of hearing other music was that I liked some things that I heard but I always thought,'Where's the rest of it?'. It didn't have the same amount of detail or instrumentation in the arrangements. I liked a lot of the things other people liked - Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Van Halen, AC/DC - but if I compared it to my dad's music, there just seemed to be elements missing.
2[on 'St. Alonzo's Pancake Breakfast'] As a kid, his song about pancakes was the best thing ever. There's a crazy interlude at the end. It's a very short song - under two minutes - but it has this one interlude that's the most difficult thing he ever wrote. I learned it on the guitar.
3[on the 'Zappa Plays Zappa' project] We've been doing this since 2006 and we started with the simple goal to give people an opportunity to see and hear the music played live, a chance to hear a selection of songs that, in my estimation, is the best representation of my dad's work. Part of the struggle is that his music is relegated to a novelty section - a combination of novelty and nostalgia at this point. My feelings are very different. To me his music is still very contemporary, if not still from the future. There's stuff he's done that nobody else ever came close to.

4Was always called Dweezil by his family, but wasn't registered as such on his birth certificate; the hospital where he'd been born refused to record the unusual name, so father Frank gave him the names of his bandmates. When Dweezil found out about this as a boy, he wanted to make the name official - so his parents took him to legally change it.
5Attended Walter Reed Jr. High in North Hollywood, CA.
6Cousin of Lala Sloatman
7Brother of Moon Unit Zappa, Diva Zappa, and Ahmet Zappa.
8Son of Frank Zappa and Gail Zappa.
