Music Lesson #5 Captain Beefheart.......



Don Van Vliet was a child prodigy painter and sculpter from Lancaster, Calif. His parents trapped him out in the desert to keep him away from the crazies in Los Angeles but he escaped and formed a couple bands, the Omens and the Blackouts. The Magic Band soon found him and he became the leader of the band. Trout Mask Replica came out in 1969, produced by Frank Zappa. This album kills it. He has the sickest bluesy voice that growls like the Wolf and is as smooth as Muddy. Have a listen please.........
