Frank Zappa was a great musician and composer, but kind of an asshole. This is one of the first biographies I've ever read all the way through. I usually find them kind of dry (name dropping of other famous people the subject met once or twice, mundane details repeated in attempt to show the personality of the subject (e.g. Frank Zappa was a control freak, Frank Zappa liked eating chili and hot dogs)), and this was no exception, but Zappa was such a weirdo that I managed not to get too bored.
