Frank Zappa (1977)

Frank Vincent Zappa (Baltimore, Maryland, 21 desimber 1940 - Laurel Canyon, Kalifornje, 4 desimber 1993) wie in Amerikaansk musikus en komponist. Hy wie ferneamd om syn frjemde muzykstyl, dy't faak nuveraardich en koartswillich wie. Zappa hat mei in soad oare muzikanten wurke, dêr't The Mothers of Invention en syn freon blues sjonger Captain Beefheart de bekendsten fan wiene. Zappa mingde op syn wize rockmuzyk mei psychedelika, jazz, eksperimintele muzyk en hjoeddeiske klassike muzyk. Hy gie himsels net út de wei mei syn selsspot, humor en performance-art.

Zappa wie sûnt 1967 troud mei Gail, berne as Adelaide Gail Sloatman op 1 jannewaris 1945, dy't it behear oer de zaken fan Zappa hie. Sy hiene fjouwer bern:

  • Moon Zappa (Moon Unit Zappa, 1967)
  • Dweezil Zappa (Ian Donald Calvin Euclid Zappa, 1969), neamd nei de bynamme fan de lytse tean fan Gail.

  • Diva Zappa (Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen Zappa, 1979)

De soannen Dweezil en Ahmet spylje tegearre yn de band 'Z'.
