R.I.P. Captain Beefheart

Captain Beefheart has died. For those familiar with the margins of American culture, Captain Beefheart’s almost anti-music was a chaotic blend of humor and dissonance. A discovery of Frank Zappa, Captain Beefheart, (real name, Don Van Vliet), followed his own musical compass abandoning music in favor of the visual arts nearly 28 years ago.

He, and his spectacular lack of rhythm, will be missed.
