I agree, there are no perfect musicians but Zappa was still a genius and very intelligent man... I especially adore his instrumental works, the music is just so colourful what with the xylophones and jazzy/classical feeling and all that

And started in to whippin' on my favorite baby seal
With a lead filled snowshoe!

That got me just about as evil as an eskimo boy can be
So I bent down and I reached down and I scooped down
And I gathered up a generous heap of the deadly

(Yellow Snow!)

The deadly yellow snow from right there where the huskies go
Where upon I proceeded to take that mitten full
Of the deadly yellow snow crystals
And rub it all into his beady little eyes with a vigorous circular motion
Hitherto unknown to by people in this area but destined
To take the place of the mudshark in your mythology
Here it goes now, the circular motion...

Rub it!

And then in a fit of anger I pounced!
And I pounced again!

Great Googly Moogly!

I don't know if he's the greatest (there was too many great rock musicians for the last century ^^';), but he was a real genius, for sure.
I particulary like this caricature. 'Seems to be done with the experimental Zappa's mind. Love it!

excellent portrait of a great man, though I would be slightly less bold, greatest white musician of the past half century. I seriously doubt ol' FZ would put himself on the same level as his hero Stravinsky, and let's be honest about who was really moving and pushing music in the 50s and 60s. That said, great man, great tribute.

I also think FZ was the greatest white musician of the last 50 years!

I share your musical preferences and appreciate your caricaturist talent. I think only very clever man can do real caricatures because good sense of humor and irony is sign of big talent. Wish you a lot of inspiration.
