Zappa Plays Zappa Plays Hagstrom

THE LATEST ZAPPA PLAYS ZAPPA TOUR WAS CALLED “You Can’t Fit on Stage Anymore,” and featured Dweezil Zappa bringing his Frank-fest to smaller venues. To make the experience even more fan-friendly, Zappa gave away a Hagstrom Swede guitar at every performance and invited the winner onstage to jam with the band. In attendance at the L.A. show, was a fan named Kurt McKelvey.

“I left home at 2 a.m. and drove all night,” says McKelvey. “I came down with my Dad, and we were talking about the guitar giveaway during the drive. We even talked about what I would play if I got up on stage. I had seen Zappa Plays Zappa a couple of years ago, and I got one of Dweezil’s guitar picks at that show. I was holding that pick in my hand when Dweezil announced the winner. I guess it was just meant to be!”
