It was while in college at Washington University, St. Louis that Ike Willis and Frank Zappa met. As a guitar player since the age of 8, Ike was studying political science. He volunteered to help with the concert committee just so he could get a "Backstage" Pass" to meet Frank Zappa.
The rest as they say, is history.
As the one of longest playing members of
Frank Zappa's band.
Ike is still upholding his promise to Frank. That promise is to continue on, playing the music of which
Zappa had taught Ike oh so well.
To this day Ike fulfills Frank's wish by playing with
some awesome Zappa tribute bands from around the world, including Ike's own band. The Ike Willis Project.
