Flaneur Posted December 20, 2010 Report Share Posted December 20, 2010 The Captain died on friday, aged 69, after a long illness. Singer, horn and harp player, artist, poet, long-time Zappa associate and legendary band leader, Don Van Vliet was a very strange person and great performer, on record but particularly in concert.Don't know where to start categorising his music, for the uninitiated. Free-form psychotropic blues? Howling Wolf meets John Coltrane, on a subway platform? He was one of my early musical heroes. It's a sad weekend.
