There Aint No Santa Claus

Captain Beefheart (Don Van Vliet).   RIP. 

Captain Beefheart: There Aint No Santa Claus On The Evenin' Stage (mp3)

Just go listen to Trout Mask Replica, Lick My Decals Off Baby, Doc At The Radar Station, Safe As Milk, Ice Cream For Crow, or whatever your personal favorite record is.  And raise a toast to the good Captain!

yeah, and he did "normal" every bit as well as he did "wierd"! i remember hearing "dropout boogie" on john peel about 30 years ago, around the same time the captain left the music industry. i think he spent most of his years battling MS while concentrating on his career as an artist, but i do hope he had some happy times. we will always be grateful for his music..
