Frank Zappa: Surreal Anarchy From The Mother Superior

Miles, History of Rock, The, 1983

Frank Zappa was born a composer. Had he been born in a different time or place, he would probably have become a 'serious' composer. But unfortunately for rock music he grew up in the teen culture of California listening to Fifties doowop and R&B, and these were the styles that would permeate his compositions.
