8. NUMBER OF ALBUMS OWNED: Not that many - Lost and sold some over the years...
9. HOW DID YOU DISCOVER CAPTAIN BEEFHEART AND THE MAGIC BAND:
Was a Zappa fan, starting seeing Beef's name associated with Zappa , so I borrowed Trout Mask Replica from a friend. I hated it at first, laughed at it for a while, then started enjoying it - especially Veteran's Day Poppy . Now, of course, I love it !
10. NUMBER OF BEEFHEART GIGS SEEN, AND WHICH YEARS:
I think it was seven, from 1970 till the end...
11. ART SHOWS VISITED: None, sorry to say
12. ANY CONTACT WITH DON ?
Yes, talked to him backstage a few times, and he was very nice, and auditioned for him twice, although one of those times was unofficial, in a hotel room... He said he liked my playing, but I did not play very impressively, and I think he may have been lying just to be nice.
13. MUSICAL ABILITY/ TRAINING:
I've been playing guitar for many years, mostly self- taught. Took some music theory classes...
14. ANY OTHER INFO YOU WISH TO ADD ?
I also like some modern orchestral stuff, such as Stravinsky...
And I wish Don was in good health !
