Dweezil Zappa was born September 5, 1969 and is an American rock guitarist and occasional actor.

In the 1980s, Zappa worked as an MTV VJ and was promptly fired after badmouthing MTV on The Howard Stern Show. He also recorded some solo albums, as well as playing for other artists. Zappa can be heard playing lead guitar on The Fat Boys Wipe Out (1987) and can be seen in the music video for Don Johnsons top 40 song, Heartbeat. He also played co-lead guitar (along with Reb Beach) on Wingers cover of Jimi Hendrixs Purple Haze. He also had a part in the futuristic Arnold Schwarzenegger film The Running Man as Stevie (Dont touch that dial!), and gave his most famous cameo role in John Hughess Brat Pack film, Pretty in Pink (starring Molly Ringwald), as Andies friend, Simon.

Since the early 1990s, Zappa has been working on a piece of music named What the Hell Was I Thinking?, a 75-minute piece featuring guitar solos by dozens of famous guitar players. The project has suffered from numerous difficulties and has been reworked several times since the 90s. Dweezil said in September 2004: I started recording it on analog tape almost 13 years ago... There are probably about 35 guest guitar players on it, everybody from Brian May to Eddie Van Halen, Eric Johnson, Angus and Malcolm Young ” its quite a crazy project. Im still waiting and hoping to record Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page as some of my final guests on there.

In the mid 1990s, Zappa voiced the character Ajax Duckman on the animated series Duckman. He also briefly appeared in the television sitcom Normal Life with sister Moon Unit Zappa and former Laverne & Shirley star Cindy Williams. He composed and performed the theme music for The Ben Stiller Show (the solo from Spinal Taps Break Like the Wind). In 1999, Dweezil, alongside his brother, Ahmet, starred in a television series called Happy Hour which debuted April 3, 1999 on the USA Network. The show lasted for one season.

In Weird Al Yankovics 2003 eleventh studio album Poodle Hat, Zappa performs the opening guitar solo and lends his vocal talents to the track, Genius in France. In 2006, Zappa organized the Zappa Plays Zappa tour. He assembled a band of young musicians with a view to bring the music of Frank Zappa to a younger audience. The tour also featured guest appearances by Steve Vai, Napoleon Murphy Brock and Terry Bozzio. The tour began in Europe in May with dates in the U.S. from June. After a break it continued in the U.S. on October 18, 2006. The 2007 version of the tour ran from July, finishing in Australia in early December, and featured Ray White as special guest. The shows ended with the promise: There are so many songs we want to learn to play ... see yall next year ..., and further tours have followed each year since 2007. In 2009, Ray White left Zappa Plays Zappa for an undisclosed reason
