Default R.I.P. Captain Beefheart

R.I.P., Captain Beefheart: One of rock's truest originals | WBEZ

The Associated Press blurb on his death barely does him justice:
Musician and artist Don Van Vliet, who performed a complex brand of experimental rock under the name Captain Beefheart, has died. He was 69.

The Michael Werner Gallery in New York confirmed Van Vliet's death Friday in California due to complications stemming from multiple sclerosis. The gallery exhibits his paintings.

Van Vliet was probably best known for the album "Trout Mask Replica," which was released in 1969 by Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band.

The album's angular, dissonant take on blues rock and its surreal lyrics put Van Vliet outside the mainstream, but staked his place in rock history.
In the 1980s, Van Vliet turned full-time to drawing and painting. He is survived by his wife of more than 40 years.

In the early 70's I was reviewing records for Warner Brothers . One of the very first I reviewed was a Captain Beefheart LP .There are many artists that never went commercial and were not known by the general public .However ,in my opinion they could stand with anyone as being a great talent .
