My granpda used to rush to get the paper every morning and flip to the obits. We'd ask him what he was doing and he'd say "Making sure I'm not listed".

I have heard the name before and I am pretty sure I have heard at least some of his stuff and maybe even saw them on TV once but I don't recall much so I decided to just now listen to some of his stuff again. Well, all I can say is it is not anything that interested me which is probably why I never got into his stuff. Not surprised he was a friend of Zappa. A lot of his stuff also sounded to me like it was all about how weird he could make it and expect to shock people with weirdness. I just don't find it enjoyable.

I have owned a Frank Zappa album and saw him in concert and he does have an ok song or three but I know now I was just listening to him because he was known to be odd and back then it made me feel special, a rebel. Today, I just don't find Zappa enjoyable to listen to and I doubt I will ever become a beefheart fan.

Sorry, but if I had something to say that was it. Not bashing the guy, just not my taste in music is all.

My favorite Beefheart is his song with Zappa "Wonderful Wino" from the Lost Episodes, that came out after Zappa died, old random B-sides and whatnot. Give me a minute and let me see if I can find a youtube to link. It's a song that even the haters can enjoy.

Thanks for posting them fletch. Honestly I had forgotten all about him until someone posted on facebook.

I wasn't a huge fan of him OR Zappa, I could probably only name one or two songs of each, but like it said in the bio I posted "The Captain, mostly remembered today as an icon from a certain time and place in American history...." He was part of my college radio experince from 25 years ago, where else but college radio could you get away with, for example playing Zappa's "Joe's Garage" and dressing like the captain....
