There is no appropriate rating for Frank Zappa. "Outstanding" is maybe a word that describes him. Outstanding as musician, as guitar player, as artist, as visonary, as person.
Totally underrated for his guitar works. His guitar solos are technically astonishing and suprising. He could play all different kinds of styles and tones. My personal favorite guitar player.
And the duo George Duke/Frank Zappa (together with Chester Thompson on drums) is unbeatable. What they did live on stage... You can't do that anymore. Impossible

I love Frank Zappa so much! Not only as a musician, but as a person and philosopher. The size of his catalogue is intimidating. He wrote rock, jazz, guitar-oriented music, classical, blues, you name it! A very strange person but a very smart one too.

From junodog4 07/26/2012 15:23
What is often overshadowed by his clever tongue-in-cheek delivery is how brilliant Zappa and the mothers were with their musicianship. He was a real perfectionist... Listen to their parts on their albums. Try to play along. These guys were top notch. Zappa was amazing. RIP, Frank. Right now he's trying to teach Moses, Gandhi and Einstein how to jam.

He could have been a serious musician if he ever grew up. I'm glad in his 52 years he never grew up!
