Frank Zappa. One of the most influential guitarists [in my opinion]. His guitar work [as well as vocal] is just inspirational. If he has a message, he portrays it through his music. Most people have heard/seen Zappa in one form or another, whether is seeing a picture of him, hearing his music, or anything else. Most of his songs are about abstract subjects, while others can be about comical or even taboo [in the time] topics. He also incorporated many genres into his music. If you listen to his music, you can distinctly tell the wide range of the genres. In the song Apostrophe, he lets loose what has to be one of the best solo's i've ever heard in my life. Though he was before my time, I feel like I know a little about him from just his music.

R.I.P. Frank Zappa
December 21st, 1940 - December 4th, 1993

Below is just a link to the audio of the live version of his song Stink-Foot. This is the live version.
Some bad language.
