Frank Zappa's 1984 release "Does Humor Belong in Music" saw him directly addressing the criticism he had received from some quarters for the less serious aspects of his artistic output. In spite of this criticism, however, Zappa’s ability to function both as a purveyor of slapstick humour and as a composer of serious avant-garde rock and classical music, while also reinventing the genres of jazz fusion and doo-wop, is testament to his greatness.
