Oh no! the Captain is finally resting in peace

R.I.P. Don van Vliet aka Captain Beefheart
The MS finally got to him.

Thanx for all the music & laughs.

Apes-Ma, Apes-Ma
Remember when you were young Apes-Ma?
And you used to break out of your cage?
Well you know that you're not
Strong enough to do that anymore now
And Apes-Ma... The little girl that
Named you years ago died now
And you're older Apes-Ma
Remember when she named you
And it was in the paper Apes-Ma?
Apes-Ma, Apes-Ma
You're eating too much
And going to the bathroom too much Apes-Ma
And Apes-Ma, your cage isn't getting any bigger Apes-Ma

Sad to hear this, finally, after all these years of rumor. Perhaps he & Frank will again make great music together ...

Condolences to his family, friends, and fans. There will never be another like the Good Captain.

Just read this moments ago...

He was one of only a handful of people that truly inspired and revolutionized my view of music.

You will not be forgotten, Don.

Shiny Beast (Bat Chain Puller) is on my top ten desert island disc list. His legacy will live on...
