Frank Zappa was a music genius whose IQ is said to be172...I heard this story a while back so some of the details are lost but here's the basic gist. During one of the rehearsals of Zappa's orchestral music..the conductor comes up to Zappa and says.."look, you have to change this because my players can't keep up".....it was of course a very difficult part in the piece...and Zappa looks and him and smirks and says.."HA, my rock band can do it!"Classical musicians who regularly play Beethoven(IQ 165), Mozart(IQ 165), and Bach(IQ 165).....had difficulty with Zappa's music...Not only did he write rock music, but he also composed jazz, classical, blues, disco (of course when he was making fun of it), r&b, soul, funk, punk, country, reggae, avant garde, swing, big band, bluegrass, doo wop, fusion, .....the man dabbled in every musical genre there was, and what is so amazing, is that his compositional skill was so advanced beyond anyone around that time in his genre, that he was able to be completely proficient in all those different styles. That comes from having a great musical ear...and Zappa's ear was impeccable. The man composed large scale, complex, sophisticated works for full orchestra.....you have to have a great ear and high IQ to do that.
