Default Frank Zappa started out playing drums.

Maybe I was the only one that didn't know this, but starting to read Zappa's biography I learned he started out playing the drums. His parents bought first set for $50. I found this picture out on the intertoobs.

once the brass ceases to glitter, and the drum looses its luster, and the stage remains dark, all you have left is the timbre of family.

You can really hear it in his compositions.
