He was a self-taught composer and performer and his diverse musical influences led him to create music that was often impossible to categorize. His 1966 debut album with the Mothers of Invention Freak Out! Combined songs in conventional rock and roll format with collective improvisations and studio-generated sound collages. His later albums shared this eclectic and experimental approach irrespective of whether the fundamental format was one of rock jazz or classical.
He wrote the lyrics to all his songs which humorously reflected his iconoclastic view of established social and political processes to widespread critical acclaim. Many of his albums are now considered essential in rock and jazz history. He is regarded as one of the most original guitarists and composers of his time and remains a major influence on many musicians and composers.He died of prostrate cancer in 1993 aged 52.
