Exposed to the music industry from an early age, Dweezil Zappa developed a strong affinityfor playing the guitar and producing music. Able to learn directly from world-class guitaristssuch as Steve Vai and Eddie Van Halen, Dweezil quickly developed into a musical star in hisown right, releasing his first single (produced by Eddie Van Halen) at the age of 12.
Since 2006, Dweezil put his own original music on hold, assembled a virtuoso band ofmusicians and devoted himself to performing the music of Frank Zappa extensively at venues across the world, the only official act to do so since his father’s death in 1993.
