Photos taken around Newcastle

Dweezil Zappa, son of Frank, brought his dad’s music to life again in  Newcastle at the great Civic Theatre in April 2009. Dweezil played amazing  guitar. I saw Frank Zappa play back in 1972 and 1974, awsome. He had  guest Norman Gunston (actor Gary MacDonald) play a harmonica solo. Here  Dweezil rips out another guitar solo, this one was from the song Montana. My  daughter Ellen took this picture.
