With his unique brand of humor, biting wit, and an undeterred commitment to experimentation, Frank Zappa forever altered rock ‘n’ roll. The budding counterculture icon developed a deep interest in avant-garde classical music and composition in his early years. As he grew up, Zappa melded these early interests with doo-wop, psychedelic rock, and his own unique flair to create records that could be at turns outrageous, hilarious, and somber. From his early releases in the 1960s to his untimely death in 1993, the prolific artist never missed a beat and released close to 70 records during his lifetime.
