Frank Zappa

On this day - December 4 - in 1993, Frank Zappa died at the age of 53 from prostate cancer.

I had been a fan of Zappa's since 1966 when his group, The Mothers of Invention, released their first LP, Freak Out!. During his lifetime, Zappa released 62 albums (with and without the Mothers). I probably owned 40 of those LPs.

 Since his death, the Zappa family has released an additional 43 albums. Fortunately, for Zappa fans, this material is available on Spotify.
