I have sad news about a Zappa alumni: Kurt McGettrick (bari sax - '88 tour) died last Sunday night (5/7/07).  Cancer...

Kurt was a friend and a musical colleague of mine.  He was an enormously talented and accomplished musician and he will be greatly missed here in LA.

For updating your page about Kurt, http://www.united-mutations.com/m/kurt_mcgettrick.htm

I have some additional information about some CDs that Kurt played on. 

Kurt McGettrick played on the following CDs:

Kurt also played on the motion picture soundtrack, "I'll Do Anything".  (Bari Sax)

Here's a link to a sax web forum where people are paying tribute to Kurt McGettrick, the musician.
