Captain Beefheart has passed away.

Oh the Diva feels so old. Another musical pioneer from her youth has passed on. My um..unusual...taste in music was honed while listening to Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention,

and Captain Beefheart and The Magic Band.

Frank died in 1993 and the Diva just read that the Captain died today. Yeah, I listened to bubblegum and disco but it was balanced out by the unusual sounds of other, more musically challenging, artists. Both of these musicians battered their listening audiences with raw emotions and more than a little whimsy.
