Diskografi

Zappa utvecklade sina föreställningar till en hybrid av fria improvisationer, hårt styrda arrangemang och rolika, samhällskritiska sketcher. Publikmässigt hade han ingen större framgång, men han hade hängivna beundrare, inte minst bland musikerna. 1979 blev Zappas låt Bobby Brown, om en homosexuell discjockey och hans hemliga liv, en radiofavorit i Sverige. (Texten var alltför magstark för engelsktalande länder.) 1983 komponerade Zappa för och dirigerade London Symphony Orchestra, och han tog intryck moderna kompositörer som Stravinskij och Varèse. Hans konserter innehöll alltid det oväntade, och han var samtidigt rolig och bitsk, bestämd och oförskämd. - - - Zappa hör till musikhistoriens stora peronligheter och särpräglade begåvningar.
