composer, guitarist,

band leader and producer

who was rock's

most committed iconoclast

 

(...)

 

Mr. Zappa was a quintessential

20th-century American composer,

a maverick within popular music

and an outsider

among classical composers.

 

His huge body of work

-- more than 60 albums since 1966 --

embraces doo-wop,

big-band suites, heavy metal,

jazz-rock, blues-rock,

orchestral music

and every pop fad

he decided to mock.

 

The stage shows of his band,

the Mothers of Invention

(renamed Zappa after 1978),

were renowned

for precise musicianship

and uninhibited,

sometimes scatological

humor.

 

His classical chamber

and orchestral compositions

have been conducted

by Zubin Mehta and Pierre Boulez,

and the Lyons Opera Ballet of France

commissioned choreographers

to create dances to his music.
