I Heart Beefheart, The Captain

Interviewer: Don’t you want to make money?

Beefheart: Sure

Interviewer: Then why don’t you go commercial?

Beefheart: I think, either I’m too smart…or too dumb. I don’t know which.

(My normal ranty long posts will resume shortly – hopefully interspersed with more of the recent music goodness…)

    Erm, is that the Captain? (He looks like Frank Zappa to me.)

    Indeed, that is Frank Zappa but if you watch the video, it’s all about Beefy and Zappa features since he was childhood friends and then later a close working colleague of Beefheart, so he’s considered a key person to interview about the Cpt.

    Ah, right. My computer failed to show me that there was any video there, but now I see that there is. (Even though my particular computer refuses to show it.)
