From the Back Cover:

Frank Zappa is the most prolific composer and recording artist of the 20th Century. Besides his guitar mastery, Zappa's ability of incorporating any style into his unique body of work is unprecedented. Even before his death in 1993, Frank Zappa attained success and respect in the rock and classical worlds. In recent years, an increasing number of classical ensembles have included Zappa's music on programs including other great masters, such as Mozart and Rossini. Now updated with amazing information published for the first time, "Cosmik Debris" provides readers with the first fully accurate and comprehensive overview of Frank Zappa's career and output.

Read the Look Magazine article that encouraged Frank Zappa to discover the music of Edgard Varese and see the first LPs he bought. Find out about Frank's early '60s Studio Z recordings and the infamous raid on his studio. Discover the humble beginnings of The Mothers Of Invention and their notorious rise to prominence as kings of the underground. Armed with "conceptual continuity clues," a gig list and a massive discography, "Cosmik Debris" gives Frank Zappa fans a view of his career that no other books has ever attempted.

About the Author:

Greg Russo has written a series of articles on Frank Zappa in Discoveries Magazine, and this has provided the basis for Greg's comprehensive account of the prolific career of Zappa.
