This site is the best I have found on the web. I have loved the Captain since I first heard him while tripping back in 1970. I saw him live twice; his concert at Brighton’s Dome in 1971 (or was it ’72) still ranks as the best live performance I have ever seen. He truly is the only authentic genius pop music has produced.

Bill, you may not remember me very well. I’m one of your students from North Bend when you were in that area (Bandon, I think). Though I’ve not talked to you in many years, I sort of keep up with you through a good friend – Bill Dietz. I currently reside in Lincoln City, OR, and I work at Bi-Mart as a manager. I’m married now and have two kids, a 10 year girl and a 7 year old boy. I’m glad things are going well for you, so I hear. I read your book and liked it. I now know who Zoot is and the impact he had on so many people’s lives, including mine. I still play. I can’t really say what kind of style because it changes so much, depending on where my heart is at any given moment. I’ll always remember what you did for me musically. So, thank you. Have a great life and I hope we cross paths at some point.

In my almost fifty years, there have only been two pieces of music that have touched me so deeply with their beauty and their depth of both structure and feeling that I’ve actually had an orgasm listening to them – Bach’s Brandenberg Concertos and Trout Mask Replica. I think I’ll just leave it at that.

I have all the vinyl LP’s and I am looking forward to listening to the new anthology. Thanks for all the great info on the Web Site. Also, there is a good article on TMR in the Spin issue 12/99.

Captain Beefheart is an iconoclasic genius…of sorts. His work is reflected well in this super-duper website. Is Beefheart dead, or simply sleeping behind his media – media such as this wonderful website. Oh, he isn’t dead? What’s he doing then: can we visit him?

Captain beefheart is an absolute genius in every medium he dabbles in. I’ve just finished compiling a tape of his songs for a friend, and i had to add a warning about ‘Trout mask replica’ to the effect that yuo have to bear in mind that the captainmeant the tracks to sound that way and that they weren’t just made up as they went along. I haven’t yet got ‘Decals’ ‘Bat Chain puller’ or the two commercial albums yet but i look forward to finding a copy of them.

If the Captain ever gets to see this, I just want to say that I think he was and still is one of the most creative, intelligent artists ever. I have loved his music and the poetry since day one. I’m 52 this year and I was a hippie type in the old days. His music was fresh and I always took great pleasure in knowing a new album was coming out. I didn’t get all his albums from the sixties, but he has stood the test of time (can’t say that for too many artists) and I’m in the process of acquiring everything he has recorded. I hope the best of he’s still active and would love to see something new come out.

humour transcends death…maintain love over gold…creeds divide God’s children…keep taking the Captain’s tablets of wisdom… It was the Summer of 64. I was already aware of The Captain’s music- along with that of Roland Kirk, Elmore James, Blind-boy Grunt (aka Bob Dylan?), FZ, etc., etc. That night a few of my friends from a garage band called Pig Iron collected together on a jetty under a full-moon at high tide and started up an acoustic set…after a touch of ‘I feel like a’said’ I noticed white unicorns heading in on the wavetops and decided to check out the displacement of my body weight in the sea. As I was relaxing and viewing the moon’s paralax at 180 degrees (whilst the unicorns snorted past me) a number of Don’s tunes began to wash through my inner conciousness. Now, 35 years later, the rest is history. I’m pleased to note that I still have 90% of what the Captain has done on vinyl, that a new generation is enjoying a lot of it on CD, that (even at 51) I find bands like Portishead, Leftfield and PJ Harvey still pull my bat chain as much as the Captain ever did. The man’s drawings and paintings were always in tune and inseperable from his music- the way he’s going is fine with me- if anyone’s not getting the same vibes from those images that they got from his music then they’ve gotta get their eye-sockets quickly connected back to their chestbone meadows…
