Summary

Ten years after his death, Frank Zappa continues to influence popular culture. With almost one hundred recordings still in print-from his revolutionary work with the Mothers of Invention to his influential first solo album, Lumpy Gravy-Frank Zappa remains a classic American icon. Scores of bands have been influenced by (and have shamelessly imitated) Zappa's music, and a talented roster of musicians passed through Zappa's bands, including Captain Beefheart, Jean-Luc Ponty, George Duke, Lowell George, and Steve Vai. Now comes the definitive biography of Zappa by best-selling author Barry Miles, who knew Zappa personally and was present at the recording of some of his most important albums. Miles follows Zappa from his sickly Italian-American childhood in the 1940s (his father worked for the military and was used to test how effective new biological warfare agents were) to his youthful pursuit of what was a lifelong dream: becoming a classical composer. In the acclaimed Zappa, Barry Miles brings the many different personalities of this music legend together for the first time.
