Saw Drumbo perform earlier this year at a benefit show, said it was his final concert. The Ol' Cap'n is still breathing, by last report. A fantastic Blues man. A tremendous Rock band. Will never get the accolades he desrves.

This looks like a cult.

This looks like a cult.

According to some of the stuff that's come out in recent years, they sort of were. Reportedly the Captain would have hour-long sessions in which the others would listen while he held forth on Important Matters, and would sometimes target individual band members for sustained verbal abuse. Not exactly peace and love.

Saw the Captain and the Magic Band perform the entire "Lick My Decals Off, Baby" album. I've never seen anything like it since. Astounding.

I'm 23 and just discovering the joy of Beefheart.
