Also, have you heard the bass line on Run Chico, Run? Pure sex.

That's totally appropriate for that particular tune, as Chico himself was apparently quite the ladies man,

Oh!  I thought it was just a reference to the fact that the bass line finishes a couple of minutes before the end of the song.

I can only add:  The lyrics for "Run Chico Run" definitely have references to "Big Daddy" and to "Silver Cannons", which could only be interpreted as having connections to Chico's immoralities and to the gangsters (who were married to all of these women) and their pistols.   The overall feel of the song, ie the "bass" line...is as said, "Pure Sex" and does sound quite "thumpy".   At first, it suggested two canines sharing a bowl of Alpo, and then having a "doggie quickie", but with further listening and deciphering, it became more clear.  I hear it as being more in tune to the soundtrack of a Ron Jeremy Porno Movie, where Ron is really pounding some skank with all the flavors of a Salisbury Steak TV Dinner with Mash Potatoes and Gravy.   Not a totally conclusive cornocopia of taste, unless there's Peas and Carrots and the little space in the foil tray for the Brownie, if you know what I mean.   I think Chico knew exactly what he was doing and what he was eating, and it's clear that Dennis Wilson was so intrigued by this, not only did he eat the Brownie, but he spent his whole life pursuing other delictable desserts!!  Chico, Ron and Dennis, at least to me, are all one in the same!!   Cool Guy

It's pure genius, that Zeppo could take all of this about Chico and make a "classic" song out of it.   

We're truly blessed.

All great stuff guys. I think it's clear now that "Do You Dig Worms" is, in fact, the veiled history of Zeppo's hasty exile to a remote location in the Hawaiian Islands due to all of the transgressions alluded to above, and that the Hawaiian chant, in the hands of a licensed cryptologist, will reveal exactly where Zep has been hiding out for lo these many years (hint: it's nowhere near where Steve Love has been "in exile"). Zep's "under duress" departure kept him from meeting the same fate as Bobby Fuller, but was one more of the destabilizing effects on Brian, who no longer had the "humor" ballast that had kept him grounded (OK, semi-grounded...) and would look in vain for surrogate jokesters with which to chill (Jasper Dailey, Stanley Shapiro, Tandyn Almer, Rodney Bingenheimer). None of those estimable gentleman could take Zep's place, of course.

I recently picked up a copy on 'run chico run' on eBay!!!

I fell over it by mistake, and not thinking i'd ever get close to getting a copy, I won it for $87.00!!!  there was only 2 others bidding on it..

it was not advertised all that well, the listing said Zeppo Marx record....... so I opened the page, and 'bingo'!    Zeppo Wilson on Capitol....

of course i was worried it was going to be a re-issue.... but after some heavy research, i found myself an owner of one hard to find 45....

when i get a chance.... ill upload a youtube link.....

Now i can store it safely with my Glen Campbell 'Guess Im Dumb' Capitol 45...

Not particularly surprised that Zeppo has yet to be cast in the upcoming "Love and Mercy" biopic. He's definitely a hard shoe to fill.

Well, they decided to depict Zeppo like Jesus in "Ben-Hur." You just see the back of his head or other characters talking to him for added gravitas.

You're kidding me, my best mate told me the same thing a minute or so before I read this! Check you're wearing pants before reading what she said next:



they're in talks with Zeppo himself to get him to supply HIS OWN BACK OF HEAD

It's madness. If those rumors of him retiring from film are to believed, what a superbly fitting way for him to crown Wink his illustrious film career.

I heard a rumor that Mike Love has signed a contract for a Z. Wilson/Love produced Beach Boys album, but only if he can write with him, alone in a tree house in India (to make levitation easier). The lyrics must also include the following words: beach, ocean, fun, Kokomo, girls, coupe, and John Stamos. If any of these conditions are not met... well, lawyers are standing by.

I wonder how the Z.Wilson/M.Love arrangement is coming along in regards to recent events: Sonny 'Wilson vrs. Cassius 'Love'.....

Could be a winner for Dr. Love....

In all of this talk about Zeppo Wilson, even Alan Boyd weighing in, we should all be ashamed that we have been so remiss as to forget the fogotten one, Gummo Wilson. We should be ashamed indeed.

I think I have a scratched-to-smithereens copy of this disc buried at the bottom of a mouldering heap of refuse in the far corner of my barn. I got it in a job lot of random compostables a few years ago and hadn't realized the full extent of its profound insignificance until now. Maybe I will excavate it and contact Alan Boyd to strongly urge that a needle drop (the master was lost by Chico himself in an early morning poker game in '49, put up as collateral against a 2 dollar all-in wager) of the deservedly obscure track not be included in the next umpteenth-anniversary BB compilation.

yeah, my copy is pretty trashed too, somebody really loved this at some point.  by the groove wear, it looks like it ended up in somebody's
jukebox, but still plays ok.  I keep looking to find a Mint copy of it, but so far, havn't found a copy.   Sad

Perhaps we could all share our stories of meeting Zeppo, those of us that have had the honour?

Alan Boyd and Jon Stebbins really should consider writing a book about Zeppo.  Call it 'The Lost Wilson'.
So much is unknown about him, and hard to find anything on the net about him.

And production aside, I’d so much rather hear a 14 year old David Marks shred some guitar on Chug-a-lug than hear a 51 year old Mike Love sing about bangin some chick in a swimming pool.-rab2591
