Captain Beefheart, 1941 - 2010

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Don Van Vliet died today, from complications of multiple sclerosis.

So sorry to hear that. Captain Beefheart was one of the few musicians who managed to wrench me out of my rockist little rut and teach me something about the unlimited joys of music.

And that's about as conventional as he ever got.

My condolences to his family. RIP.
