I’d like to offer a sincere big thank you to Derek, our erstwhile news editor, for all his help and close attention to detail over the last few years.
He’s conducted an impressive Big Dig through anything with even a faint whiff of Beefheart about it and brought us some really interesting and illuminating stories. Who could forget Derek’s interview with Herb Bermann; a character so mysterious in the Beefheart universe that many have even posited he didn’t exist? Derek tracked him down, interviewed him and delivered the results to you here at beefheart.com
I’m sure Derek will still pop up here occasionally in the future with a few scrupulously chased tid-bits of Beefheart trivia / import but in the main I’m going to resume news-editor duties due to competing claims on Derek’s time.
Thanks Derek, you’ve kept thinks moving on here at beefheart.com so beautifully. I’m sure our regular and occasional readers will miss your contributions greatly and I’m very grateful for all of your efforts.
