Terry Bozzio

Speaking of Zappa drummers, I guess what I really want to know about Terry Bozzio is, how did he go from this

To this

in the span of less than a decade?

Yeah. One of these things is not like the other.


The fact is, though, that Missing Persons, one of the most oddly iconic acts of the 1980s, is a band that was drenched in Zappa credibility. Lead singer Dale Bozzio was a longtime Zappa associate, with integral parts in both the Joe’s Garage and Thing-Fish albums. Terry Bozzio of course was a long-time Zappa drummer and the one Zappa chose first to throw “The Black Page” to.

Zappa guitarist Warren Cuccurullo rounds out the Missing Persons lineup. Isn’t that something?

  1. Hi Aaron, this is weird and random but I recently read your comment on Roger Ebert’s blog where you called him a national treasure. It was just strange because that is EXACTLY how I refer to him when Im talking to my friends. I always tell them, just pray he keeps writing and working because the man is a bona fide national treasure. It just struck me as interesting to read someone who thinks the exact same thing!
