Descanse en paz Captain Beefheart

Captain Beefheart ha muerto y Tom Waits lo lamenta:

"He was like the scout on a wagon train. He was the one who goes ahead and shows the way. He was a demanding bandleader, a transcendental composer (with emphasis on the dental), up there with Ornette [Coleman], Sun Ra and Miles [Davis]. He drew in the air with a burnt stick. He described the indescribable. He's an underground stream and a big yellow blimp. "I will miss talking to him on the phone. We would describe what we saw out of our windows. He was a rememberer. He was the only one who thought to bring matches. He's the alpha and the omega. The high water mark. He's gone and he won't be back."


Don Van Vliet aka Captain Beefheart inhabited the world right under noses with his brush, his voice, and his music. He listened with his eyes and he saw with his ears…..Wondrous, secret,,, and profound, he was a diviner of the highest order..he described the indescribable…if he was a horse; he’d be unridable……..Long may all that he has given the world continue to sprout …. Our sympathy to his beloved and mythic wife Jan…

Admiración le tenía, desde luego.
Sus estilos no son tan distantes.

yo, con ocasión de su muerte, me propuse volver a intentar escuchar el trout mask; como en otras ocasiones, me vinieron a la cabeza unas palabras tuyas, adversas, que venían a decir algo como "demasiado...", incluso para una fan de t.w XD

por si te interesa publicarlo:
