Freak Out! was this quirky composer's debut album.
He had such bad health as a kid that his parents relocated the family.
He is considered to be one of the all time guitarists, and is known for his comical lyrics.
He got married to Kay Sherman on December 28, 1960, and after their divorce in 1964, he married Gail Zappa on September 21, 1967.
Like Gertrude Stein, he enjoyed working in an avant-garde style.
