Two Frank Zappa Books On The Way This Fall

Frank Zappa fans are in for a real treat before the year is up with the upcoming releases of not one, but two books honoring the legendary musician.

Gear heads will love Zappa Gear: The Unique Guitars, Amplifiers, Effects Units, Keyboards And Studio Equipment when it hits the shelves on November 29, which not only takes a look at each instrument Zappa and his band used, but the people behind the pieces.

Then coming December 15, The Hot Rats Book will celebrate the record on its 50th anniversary, written by Zappa's son Ahmet and photographer Bill Gubbins.
