Holy shit. When picking CDs to listen to in the car today, I took Trout Mask Replica with me, an album I hadn't listened to in years.

Shit, this really crappy radio station here that plays awesome music has this tendency to ramble on and on and on about pretentious things, and today they were being REALLY bad about some artist, about how fantastic he is and all this stuff he did. So, I left the station on just waiting to find out who they were describing and then cracked up when I found out it was Captain Beefheart, because they were really going over the top. I didn't realize they were saying all that because he died. I am an ass.

I was there when Captain Beefhart started up his first band.
I told him, "Don't do it that way, you'll never make a dime."

I don't have many positive things to say about his music, but I will say that he had a lot of batshit/cool ideas that occasionally translated properly and that his attitude towards music was a very awesome one. RIP.

One of the best tracks I've ever heard. Not being sarcastic, or anything. It's fucking incredible.

That's how I feel. I know a lot of people really dug and respected him. I can get behind that.
