Zappa exhibited an early interest in playing guitar and composing music. Famous guitarists such as Eddie Van Halen and Steve Vai taught him how to play the guitar. Dweezil’s career began when he was hired as an MTV VJ, but he was sacked after criticizing the network on “The Howard Stern Show.” He was working on solo records at the time, as well as playing for other musicians such as the Fat Boys, Winger, and Don Johnson. He also had a few minor acting parts, such in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “The Running Man” and “Pretty in Pink.” Zappa began working on a project called “What the Hell Was I Thinking?” in the 1990s, which features guitar solos by a number of well-known guitarists and is still in the works today.

Dweezil had the opportunity to voice Ajax Duckman in the series “Duckman” in the mid-1990s. He continued to take advantage of numerous television possibilities, such as “Normal Life” and “The Ben Stiller Show.” Dweezil was also a cast member of the hit show “Happy Hour,” which lasted only one season owing to copyright issues.

Zappa assisted in the recording of Weird Al Yankovic’s album “Poodie Hat” in 2003. Three years later, he organized a band of young musicians for the “Zappa Plays Zappa” tour, with the goal of introducing his father’s music to a new generation of listeners. It started its tour in Europe in 2006 and then moved on to the United States, pausing occasionally but eventually continuing each year. Guests on the tour have included Steve Vai, Terry Bozzio, and Ray White.

Dweezil dated Lisa Loeb for around six years, and Zappa even toured with Loeb’s band. In 2004, they also had a Food Network show called “Dweezil & Lisa.” He married fashion stylist Lauren Knudsen in 2005, and the couple had two children, but in 2010, his wife filed for divorce, alleging irreconcilable differences. In 2012, Dweezil married Megan Marsicano for the second time.
