I agree. Now that Zappa is no longer alive, I can't think of anyone having to play the variety of styles that you are required to play.
As for your replacement, I actually think there are a lot of chameleons out there. Those of us that earned our livings doing GB work could cut it, no?
So, I don't know if you've ever addressed it, but how DID you get the gig?
