RIP Don Van Vliet, "Captain Beefheart"
This really has nothing to do with the subjects of this blog, but Don Van Vliet or "Captain Beefheart" was a huge inspiration for me, he changed the way I listened to music. I even have the cover of Trout Mask Replica tattooed to my leg. After a long battle with multiple sclerosis, Don died at the age of 69.
He will be missed.
Electricity + Sure 'Nuff 'N' Yes I Do
For those of you that are interested in the man's life, but not his music (it is rather challenging) here's an excellent documentary available via youtube.
