Interview: Terry Bozzio

It's well known that Frank Zappa had the highest standards for musicians in his band, so drummer Terry Bozzio's membership in that select group starting in 1975 is a true badge of honor. Bozzio can be heard on Zappa albums including Bongo Fury, Zoot Allures, Zappa in New York, and Shut Up 'n Play Yer Guitar. Bozzio went on to co-found the band Missing Persons, which fused top-notch musicianship with New Wave sensibilities to give us songs like "Words", "Destination Unknown", and "Walking in L.A." A quintessential '80's band, they released three albums before breaking up in 1986. Another notable gig for Bozzio was playing on Jeff Beck's Guitar Shop album, which is widely regarded as one of the guitarist's best. This interview was for a preview article for noozhawk.com for Bozzio's collaborative performance on 7/1/17 with poet Todd Griese at Studio Channel Islands in Camarillo, California. It was done by phone on 6/5/17.
