Frank Vincent Zappa (December 21, 1940 – December 4, 1993)

Words cannot explain.
You need to hear his varied musical genres and see his performances and films and read what he said. 

"So many books, so little time." Frank Zappa 

"A mind is like a parachute. It doesnt work if it's not open." FZ

"Frank Zappa dabbled in virtually all kinds of music—and, whether guised as a satirical rocker, jazz-rock fusionist, guitar virtuoso, electronics wizard, or orchestral innovator, his eccentric genius was undeniable." 2004 Rolling Stone Album Guide

"On a personal level, freaking out is a process whereby an individual casts off outmoded and restricted standards of thinking, dress and social etiquette in order to express CREATIVELY his relationship to his environment and the social structure as a whole" Frank Zappa  in Nik Cohn's AwopBopaLooBopaLopBamBoom official zappa website
