American musician, composer, songwriter, producer, and director whose debut album, Freak Out!, was a hit.
He had such bad health as a child that his parents relocated the family to Monterey, California from Baltimore.
Many of his albums have been Gold-certified, including Apostrophe and Over-Nite Sensation.
He married Kay Sherman on December 28, 1960 and, after their divorce in 1964, he married Gail Zappa on September 21, 1967.
Like Gertrude Stein, Zappa embraced an avant-garde style of art and art production.
