Often described as a genius, Frank Zappa was undeniably one of the most innovative musicians of the 20th century.
He would fuse musical genres and incorporate diverse musical techniques and sounds, some often politically charged and intentionally shocking.
He led the sixties California freak movement, composed classical compositions throughout his career, was a hero of free speech and spoke out against censorship often in public.
Property from the estate of Zappa, who died in 1993, and his wife Gail, will come up in a live and online sale at Juliens Auctions, Los Angeles on November 4.
