Haven’t listened to Captain Beefheart in years. Hadn’t even thought about him for a long while. So it was a bit of a shock when Nika Danilova posted on Twitter that Don Van Vliet, the Captain, died today. Mer Yayanos put a notice on Coilhouse, including a wonderful YouTube playlist that I’m listening to right now, and rediscovering the love of Beefheart.
