Gail Zappa, Frank Zappa’s widow and head of the Zappa Family Trust, died at home on Wednesday, Oct. 7, according to a statement released by her family. She was 70 years old. Gail was responsible for releasing more than 30 of her prolific husband’s albums after his death in 1993. As head of the Zappa Family Trust, Gail protected her husband’s musical legacy and sought to ensure none of his material was used or released without her prior authorisation. Gail was born Adelaide Gail Sloatman in Jan. 1945, and lived in London and New York before hitchhiking to Los Angeles, according to a Rolling Stones report. She met Frank when she was working as a secretary at LA nightclub Whisky A Go Go. The pair married when she was 22 years old, and pregnant with son Dweezil. She is survived by Dweezil, Ahmet and her two daughters Moon Unit and Diva. At the time of writing, the cause of her death has not been confirmed.
