I'm no longer playing on sundays at the Rare Olive in downtown St.Pete. It was cool to do a few weeks down there. For those of you who still need your weekly guitar freakout, I will be playing downtown again very soon (hopefully every week) with my Neo-Trio. Updates coming soon.
thanks........... Jerry Outlaw
PS-- JerryOutlaw.com is coming soon..........

chris federico wrote a book about frank zappa
called "zappology" he says:
"The problem with books that are decent general overviews (like Dangerous Kitchen) is that they don't really provide what the Zappa fanatic craves -- attention to minutiae within conceptual continuity, brand-new observations, etc. Anything that HAS
contained such features has been approached with some sort of ludicrous political or literary agenda (i.e. Poodle Play).
Therefore, about seven years ago, I began writing the sort of
book that I, as a mammoth FZ fan, always wanted to read. It's finally been
completed, revised, finished up, etc., and if you're interested, here's the link
(it's currently posted for free online
reading in its entirety):
I hope you like it."
i haven't read it yet, but it sure looks like i'll be browsing through it the next couple of day. chris is asking for comment, so feel free...
ike willis is featured on a grateful dead tribute album by joe gallant & illumnati called "terrapin" on (which? records 5656)
in the picture - frank zappa cd bootleg album covers
that's all for now,
talk again to you soon,
