Bozzio, Vai and Brock join ZPZ!

Zappa veterans Terry Bozzio, Steve Vai and Napoleon Murphy Brock are included in the Zappa Plays Zappa band for the Euro spring tour.

This is at least what arranger EMA Telstar announces for the Stockholm show on May 19.
Initially singers Flo & Eddie were supposed to be in the band but this will not happen. They are busy with other work.

Napoleon will do the lead vocals.
He can be heard on several Zappa albums, for example Roxy & Elsewhere (1974) and One Size Fits All (1975).
Drummer Bozzio was in Zappa's band between 1975 and 1978.
Guitar virtuoso Steve Vai played with Zappa in the early 80's.

Zappa Plays Zappa is a project by Frank's sons Ahmet och Dweezil.
The idea is to play their father's music and the tour will span over Frank's entire carreer.
