A sad, poorer world it is: Don van Vliet (Capt. Beefheart) - aged 69 - died on last Friday, Dec. 17th
... nuff said!
I'm sincerely, deeply moved to learn about the untimely - hey, it's always untimely, don't you?!?! - death of a true genius and a personal hero of mine: Captain Beefheart.
A musician and visual artist, he was ALWAYS ahead of his times... an artist's artist and a true original.
I'll miss him a lot... will celebrate and commemorate him and his art with a loving listening to "Doc at the Radar Station" this evening.
