Captain Beefheart was fvcking awesome. His music had balls, and a sense of humor to boot.

I listen to Trout Mask Replica everyday. It probably doesn't help my case to those who question my sanity.

When he passed away in December, I dedicated my whole musical output of January to him. 19 compositions.

Totally worthy of being the Discordian patron saint of music.

It reminds of this band:

-- Murray Rothbard

"The worst thing that can happen to a good cause is, not to be skillfully attacked, but to be ineptly defended."
-- Frederic Bastiat

Just being in the same room as Beefheart makes Letterman ridiculously uncomfortable.

Beefheart was a don. Visionary musical genius and organiser who knew how to get the most from musicians even if it meant scarring them emotionally for life.

Playing three woodwind instruments at once, when you can't really play any of them properly takes real balls, pulling it off takes genius. Roland Kirk did do the multi woodwind thing better though.

One question though Alfonso, why is it that your topics on Bach and Beefheart are in the Arts section, while your topics on Hendrix and hip hop are in entertainment? Unconscious bias, intended distinction, or mere coincidence?

Nah, I honestly was just not sure where to post the topics.

Fine line between entertainment and art. A fine line that is pretty much non-existent.

I'll probably just post them all here from now on.

All the topics I posted in Entertainment could easily be here.

Tom Waits was extremely influenced by this guy

Since no one here seems to be a fan of the amazing Captain Beefheart, here are a few covers that were done by other artists.

The White Stripes doing a cover off of "Doc At the Radar Station". The album that this comes off of is actually filled entirely with Beefheart songs done by the Stripes.

XTC doing a cover off of the "Trout Mask Replica" album.

Sonic Youth covering a track off of "Safe As Milk".

Red Hot Chili Peppers(Flea and John Frusciante) doing a cover off of "Lick My Decals off Baby".
