I met him at a press conference once in1982 for the "Ice Cream" album - my little tape recorder was slightly whirring and Beefheart kindly lent me his sony Walkman to finish taping the interview. A nice guy. Fairly normal. Smoked a pipe. Laughed at his own weird jokes. Wish he could've put out one more new album - oh well

I rarely shed tears for anyone marginally famous or unknown in my life.But hearing about his death made me really sad.Even though he hasn't done a music album since '82. Even though he was a jerk and a control freak.He was the true bastion of Weird Counter-Culture. An original original.Fast and bulbous!

I'm gonna miss him.
I remember borrowing the DOC AT THE RADAR STATION on LP out of a public library in Takoma Park Maryland, maybe a year after it came out.
..and hearing that song "the blimp" when i was in high school in pennsylvania.
yes, "saint beefheart" sounds about right.

Went to see Dweezil Zappa's 70th birthday tribute to his dad at the Beacon Theatre in NYC last night (terrific show). When he came out for the encore he announced the Capatin's passing to the packed house who were stunned. Dweezil said, "Yeah it's true but these things happen!" Then he and his 7 piece band played "Willie The Pimp" in tribute.

A true great. We were blessed to have him on board this crazy spinning world. Bow your heads; the Captain has left the building.
