!!'''Zappa Personnel'''
** Among the Mothers, despite only being in the group for its last year, Art Tripp tends to be remembered more than his predecessor Billy Mundi (His work with Music/CaptainBeefheart helps in this regard).
** Jimmy Carl Black, [[MemeticMutation and he's the Indian Of The Group]].
** Wind player and keyboardist Ian Underwood, particularly for his role in ''Music/HotRats''
** Violinist Don "Sugarcane" Harris for his show-stealing solos despite never being a full member of Frank’s band.
** George Duke, who went from just the keyboardist to one of the focal points of Frank's music within two years.
** Early seventies drummer Aynsley Dunbar is well regarded even by fans who dislike the Flo And Eddie period. His work with [[Music/JeffBeck other]] [[Music/{{Journey}} bands]] doesn't hurt either.
** Percussionist Ruth Underwood is held in high esteem among Zappa fans for her percussion virtuosity and {{Adorkable}} personality, remaining the gold standard for Zappa percussionists.
** Terry Bozzio is held in high esteem for his musicianship and LargeHam persona.
** Despite only playing with Frank for a year, Bozzio's replacement Vinnie Colaiuta is often acclaimed as Frank's most technically accomplished drummer.
** Bassist Scott Thunes is well liked for his bass tone and stage presence, even amongst people who aren't fans of Frank's eighties work.
** Mike Keneally is very popular for his versatility despite never appearing on any studio albums.
** OneSceneWonder Lady Bianca Odin has started gaining steam in recent years since the release of ''Philly 76'', and more than a few have wished [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter she stayed longer in Frank's band]].
** Frank's bodyguard Papa John Smothers is also quite popular with fans thanks to the frequent references to him in song.

!!'''Music'''
** ''Music/FillmoreEastJune1971'' has developed a cult status over the years, with novelist Anne Enright as a notable fan.
** Though not traditionally held as a classic, ''Music/YouAreWhatYouIs'' has gained some popularity among fans, with some arguing it as the last great/good rock album.
** "Billy The Mountain" has proven to be the most lasting track from the Flo And Eddie Era.
** Despite it's parent album's reputation as [[SoOkayItsAverage middling at best]], "Drowning Witch" is held in warm regard by fans.
** "Dupree's Paradise", though never making a proper album, is held in high regard by fans.
