Oh, and he gave his four kids really [[AwesomeMcCoolName weird but cool names like Moon Unit Zappa, Dweezil Zappa, Ahmet Emuukha Rodan Zappa and Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen Zappa]]. Dweezil has toured with many past Zappa band members over the past several years, playing much of his father's repertoire in a series of successful tours billed as ''Zappa Plays Zappa''.

Oh, and he gave his four kids really [[AwesomeMcCoolName weird but cool names like Moon Unit Zappa, Dweezil Zappa, Ahmet Emuukha Rodan Zappa and Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen Zappa]]. Moon is probably best known for her vocals on Zappa's highest-charting single, 1982's "Valley Girl", and Dweezil has toured with many past former Zappa band members over the past several years, playing much of his father's repertoire in a series of successful concert tours billed as ''Zappa Plays Zappa''.

[[http://wiki.killuglyradio.com/wiki/Mothers_Of_Invention Just look at the line-up of the Mothers of Invention]]. Having said that, when he found good musicians that he got on personally with, he liked to keep them in the band for as long as they wanted to stay: Ruth Underwood first played with Zappa in 1967 and appeared on several albums over the next ten years, while Ike Willis joined the band in 1978 and (apart from a brief hiatus) was still there for the final tour in 1988; Scott Thunes lasted from 1981 to 1988, etc.

* ConceptAlbum - A handful of his albums fit this trope. A few examples are the ''Music/FreakOut!''--''Music/AbsolutelyFree''-''Music/WereOnlyInItForTheMoney'' trilogy, ''Music/CruisingWithRubenAndTheJets'', ''Film/TwoHundredMotels'', ''[[Music/JoesGarage Joe's Garage]]'', ''Thing Fish'', ''Broadway The Hard Way'' and ''Civilization Phaze III''.

Actually, all three of the Mothers' first albums (''Music/AbsolutelyFree'' and ''Music/WereOnlyInItForTheMoney'' round out the trilogy) could qualify, depending on how you define "concept album".
*** Arguably, ''Music/FreakOut!''--''Music/AbsolutelyFree''-''Music/WereOnlyInItForTheMoney'' could not be considered a trilogy, as the album ''Lumpy Gravy'' was produced before ''We're Only in It for the Money''.
*** ''Music/LumpyGravy'' was not a Mothers album, however, although some of the Mothers did appear on it. However, in its own way it, too, could be considered a concept album.
*** ''Music/{{Apostrophe}}'' is a concept album for the first five songs. The narrator has a dream that he is an Eskimo named [[Film/NanookOfTheNorth Nanook]], and when he discovers a fur trapper beating his favorite baby seal he rubs yellow snow in his eyes, causing him to go blind. The fur trapper must travel to the Parish of St. Alfonso, currently hosting a pancake breakfast, with food cooked by Father Vivian O'Blivion. The narrator then visits a scamming fortune teller whom he humiliates. The album then branches off into unrelated territory, concluding with the tale of a horrid disease called Stink-Foot.
