Mothers of Invention Co-Founder Ray Collins Dies

The Frank Zappa music family has suffered another loss. Mothers of Invention co-founder Ray Collins died on Christmas eve in Pomona, California.

Collins had been hospitalized since December 18 after suffering a massive heart attack, and was removed from life support on Saturday.

Collins was the singer who invited a young Frank Zappa to join the Soul Giants, the band that eventually would become the Mothers of Invention.
