R.I.P. Captain Beefheart

23 Dec

Don Van Vliet, 1941-2010

“He was like the scout on a wagon train. He was the one who goes ahead and shows the way. He was a demanding bandleader, a transcendental composer, up there with Ornette, Sun Ra and Miles. He drew in the air with a burnt stick. He described the indescribable. He’s an underground stream and a big yellow blimp… He’s gone and he won’t be back.” – Tom Waits
