The concert serves as a release party for the new album, “Zapp VII: Roger & Friends.”
It is a tribute to the late great Roger Troutman and only the second album Zapp has made since Roger was killed back in 1999 by his brother Larry.
Amelia, Lester and Terry talk about the impact of the shocking murder-suicide and why and how Zapp keeps going.
Lester and Terry share tales of their upbringing in Hamilton and talk about their grandfather, the iceman; their talkbox, life without arrogance and the divine force and local radio station that propelled Zapp to international stardom.
