Frank Zappa's on the cover of the new issue of Prog, on sale today

Prog 98

The new issue of Prog is on sale today. The legendary Frank Zappa graces the front cover. It's 40 years since he released both Sheik Yerbouti and Joe's Garage, two of his seminal works. We talk to Adrian Belew and Terry Bozzio who worked with Frank on those records to get a fascinating insight into Zappa's work. Plus, with the Bizarre World Of Frank Zappa hologram tour arriving in the UK this month, we talk to Dweezil and Ahmet Zappa about the new tour and just what we can expect.
