A small eternity with Joe Travers.

We had a chance to meet Mr. Joe Travers, vaultmeister and drummer extraordinaire - also known as The Man With The Coolest Job In The World - outside Rome's Centrale Del Tennis, after another successful Zappa Plays Zappa gig, and ask him a quick question.

Me: Hi Joe, loved the concert! Just a quick question: So, what's next in the Saga?
Him: Ah, nothing at the moment, but when i go back from tour i've got about three different working ideas right now on some certain things so, well, we'll see what happens. Probably a concert release and then we're getting ready for two things. We're working on two CDs and then we're also working on the fortieth anniversary release boxset for...(looks me in the eye) something i can't tell you about!
Me: I can just do the math, c'mon. Forty years...
Him: Exactly.
Me: ...OH!
Him: Well there you are! So, gotta go.
Me: Thanks for the talk!
Him: Seeya!
