Save As Milk… But Not Save Enough

 Captain Beefheart (Don Van Vliet)

15th January 1941 – 17th December 2010
what a sad start into the day, reading that one of my very favourite musicians has passed away. after his amazing output with the magic band, his later work with frank zappa, and even and often overlooked career as a painter (click here), he was stuck to a wheelchair for the last twenty years of his life. how tragic… and it brings me to tears, that he died this friday of complications of multiple sclerosis.
we lost one of the big ones here.
