    Captain Beefheart RIP

    http://www.rollingstone.com/music/ne...ge-69-20101217

    Don Van Vliet, who became a rock legend as Captain Beefheart, died today from complications from multiple sclerosis in California. His passing was announced by the New York-based Michael Werner Gallery, which represented his work as a painter.

    His Trout Mask Replica was Number 58 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

    "Don Van Vliet was a complex and influential figure in the visual and performing arts," the gallery said in a statement. "He is perhaps best known as the incomparable Captain Beefheart who, together with his Magic Band, rose to prominence in the 1960s with a totally unique style of blues-inspired, experimental rock & roll. This would ultimately secure Van Vliet's place in music history as one of the most original recording artists of his time. After two decades in the spotlight as an avant-garde composer and performer, Van Vliet retired from performing to devote himself wholeheartedly to painting and drawing. Like his music, Van Vliet's lush paintings are the product of a truly rare and unique vision."

    Honestly, it's sad but it doesn't really change anything in terms of how we'll interact with his work, he's been gone for so long.

    Fuck me. This hurts. RIP good Captain.

    EDIT: Seriously. I am so fucking down right now. I remember the first time I heard Captain Beefheart. He opened me up to a whole new world of music. I have changed my avatar in his memory.

    The first song I ever heard from Beefheart was "Ella Guru," which I loved right away, but thought it was just some weird novelty song. When I heard all of Trout Mask Replica, I was extremely surprised that he sounded like that on EVERY SONG. Much respect.

    I actually thought he was already dead but this is sad news. I read all about him in Pamela De Barres book and he sounded amazing. A stranger Frank Zappa, not appreciated enough.
