For what it's worth, I never called Napoleon "Nappy"
either and wouldn't be surprised if he smacked my condescending ass
one for that, either.
On the alleged thread of this I heard from backstage talk
(so take it with a grain of salt) that there was always some tension
in the ZFT camp since Napoleon would not agree to work exclusively
for the Zappa Plays Zappa band. He was not about to turn down a gig
with Project/Object or any other Zappa tribute outfit that was not
authorized by the Zappa Family Trust.
As I said, this was hearsay so take it as such, although
it does make a certain amount of logic (if not sense).

Hmmm---well, that offers some explanation as to the reasoning of
why I saw Ray White at the ZPZ show in Tulsa last year instead of
Nappy & other FZ alumni---mind you, Ray did a great job, even tho'
I hadn't expected him to be there---things must be getting really
funky over at the ZFT---hope they get it together---I wanna see ZPZ
again!---keep it cool Nappy!!---we're all pullin' for ya!!!---john

All I know is that Nappy was origianlly penciled in for this past
tour but something must have happened because he said "he couldn't
a deal with the devil (GZ). That was why they got Ray White.
