    Dweezil had such an interesting group of guitarists growing up to learn from...I can really hear the Vai influence in the vid you linked. It's too bad he didn't continue developing on his own rather than doing the Zappa Plays Zappa thing instead. Oh well, I'm sure lot's of people like seeing him carry on Franks' music but I'd be happier if he was doing new things instead...

          I could hear Vai in the solo too.

          He did produce his own stuff:
          1986 – Havin' a Bad Day
          1988 – My Guitar Wants to Kill Your Mama
          1991 – Confessions
          2000 – Automatic
          2006 – Go with What You Know
          2015 – Via Zammata'

          ...and a couple a records with brother Ahmet.

          But nobody really knows about it because they aren't "great". That song I linked to is merely "okay"and only got playtime on MTV because Dweezil was a VJ for them back then. Of course he was only 17 then (sister Moon is 19 in the video)...

          While he has the technical skill and talent with the guitar, I don't think he has dad's (nor teacher Eddie VH's) musical chops so speak to produce great material that will sell. Big shoes to fill, tough acts to follow, so maybe it was easier to simply play his dad's stuff? And/or he's just too scattered having been part of so many other projects?

            Great guitar players who can't compose an interesting song to save their life are a dime a dozen. Maybe Dweezil figures he gave it a shot with those albums you mentioned and didn't get very far so might as well be the one to keep Frank's legacy alive. I've never seen Zappa plays Zappa but I've heard great things about their shows so there's that. Besides, millions of musicians play in cover bands while waiting for their big break...seems like Dweezil had the big break and is now playing in a cover band. Of course, if you're going to play in a cover band, it doesn't get much better than playing Zappa with actual members of Frank's band standing next to you
