I love loud Rock Music, and soft acoustic music, and lyrical words of delight. I’ve seen most of the best bands in the universe from The Stones, Floyd, Who and Led Zep, to Cream, Doors and Hendrix. I’ve been fortunate to see Dylan, Neil Young, North Mississippi Allstars, White Stripes, Stiff Little Fingers, The Fall, Muddy Waters, Little Richard, Bo Diddley and Son House. But there is one band who are as good as any of them and always blast the top off my skull with their wondrously complex interchanges, great beat, powerful poetic lyrics and sheer power. The excitement they generate is unbelievable.
The Magic Band are awesome! Captain Beefheart (Don Van Vliet) has the best voice in Rock and wrote some of the best lyrics.
Just what we need to blast the Brexit Blues and Trump trumpeting into touch!
Today is Beefheart Day!!
