Today in History: Frank Zappa born in 1940

75 years ago today, Frank Vincent Zappa, the American musician, songwriter, and film director was born. In his 30+ year career, Zappa composed rock, jazz, and orchestral music and directed films and music videos. Zappa produced more than 60 albums and released most of them with his band Mothers of Invention. His music was usually politically charged and often aimed at offending various religious and political conservative groups. Zappa was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1991 but continued working at his Hollywood Hills home until he died on December 4, 1993.
