Denny Walley born in Pennsylvania (1944?). Family moved to Lancaster in the mid 1950's and he befriends neighbour FZ.

Guitarist with the Mothers on the 1975 Bongo Fury tour. Captain Beefheart asked him to join the Magic Band for their European and US tour of 1975. He stayed until 1977 when he was sacked; probably for standing up for himself too much. Works with FZ again in the fall of 1978.

Married to "Janet the Planet" (from Baby Snakes (The Film)).
