Don Van Vliet would have been 75 today had he not died from MS back in 2010. A contemporary of Frank Zappa, Captain Beefheart was a relentlessly odd performer who skipped genres so easily that you could be guaranteed to love and hate his music in the course of a single album.
I was introduced to him through my brother’s copy of Trout Mask Replica. The entire double disc album is available on YouTube, and when you’ve got 80 minutes to spare, check it out.
