Amaretto Mick Gets Around!

Robert Plant and Gail Zappa with Amaretto Mick at Zappa Plays Zappa in the UK

Eric Slick with Amaretto Mick prior to Eric's performance with Adrian Belew in Germany

Ha ha -- I guess you have to either be Eric's mother or a big Zappa fan (of which I am both) to appreciate this are two pics for those hip enough to have a chuckle.

Okay then. Back to working on my novel...I will return later with a Belew tour update and some other cool stuff.

But in the "equal time" department:

Me, Julie, and Julie's boyfriend Matt eating our first toasties ever (during Julie's tour with McRad) outside of St. John's Cathedral in my favorite place in the universe, the UK. Thank you Eric II from California, bass player for Leiana and many other bands. Eric II was on tour with us, took this pic, and sent it to me yesterday when he stumbled on my website.

Great photos!!

I'm getting nothing done. Maybe tomorrow?

Thank you!

I hope people don't take that post the wrong way...I meant it as Eric is as famous as Robert Plant and Gail Zappa if Amaretto Mick is there. He's the sweetest guy in the world according to both Gary and Eric who hung out with him extensively in Germany...a true music lover who really knows his stuff (and says Eric is one of the best drummers he's ever heard so that's really saying a lot when you think about the company Mick keeps)

Hello, Amaretto here! First of all, I'd just like to say how tickled I am to find 2 pics of me on your site, thanks! Tha-a-at's right, I told Eric that I think he's one of the hottest little drummers on this planet, and I've told him this many times before. I think I can tell, being a drummer since I was 12. I'm still wondering how he managed to escape from the Muppet Show (just kidding). Julie's just breathtaking, visual and acoustic. And Gary became a friend during the festival. I really do hope that I meet the complete Slick family again someday. Love, Amaretto Mick Zeuner (Hamburg, Germany)
