Z Zappa, Frank: Frankly Brilliant
"Frank would write music for me to play that just had no business being performed on a guitar," Steve Vai told TG of his years as Zappa's 'stunt guitarist'. Jumping from classical-inspired sound collages to extended jazz-fusion improvisations, this was a band who lived without rules, helmed by a songwriter who played without limits. Though the mustachioed one died of prostate cancer in 1993, his son Dweezil's Zappa Plays Zappa tribute tours bring that questing spirit back from the grave.
