For thirty years, from 1966 until his death in 1993, Frank Zappa was one of the most influential, innovative, and controversial popular musicians, combining a wide range of musical styles with social and political parody. In this innovative biography, Courrier explodes the myths of Zappa's drug use and fetishism to illuminate the facts about this outrageously gifted composer's emergence during the eclectic and experimental sixties, linking his form of artistic rebellion to its cultural precedents, and examining Zappa as a true original. Illustrated with 30 b/w photos.
