I am sure some "agreement" was reached.

I was there in 1995 when the Vilnius bronze was unveiled. The bust was done by a bunch of artists, it has more significance than a fan tribute, there was a creative mythology that evolved - there is distinctive resonance about FZ which the old iron curtain countries understood, and the reason why Gail and Dweezil are emotional is that they finally grasped what FZ means to them, and also how beautifully the work of the Lithuanian artists has become. It has needed the last 13 years for these factors to emerge.

I got in touch with the Ryko staff member who was there in 1995, the London office made sure that Ryko in Salam Massachusetts knew and message was sent to Gail Zappa. It looks like she did not tell the kids.
