Ike Willis

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 "Back Stage Pass" to meet Frank Zappa.

As the one of longest playing members of Frank Zappa's bands, Ike is still upholding his promise to Frank.
That promise is to continue on, playing the music of Zappa.
