6. BEEFHEART ALBUMS IN ORDER OF PREFERENCE:
9. HOW DID YOU FIRST DISCOVER CAPTAIN BEEFHEART & THE MAGIC
WAS THERE A PARTICULAR SONG THAT MADE YOU SEE THE LIGHT?:
Read a review of Lick My Decals Off Baby in Rolling Stone magazine and also bought a
Warner Brothers compilation album from the inner sleeve of a Zappa album.
The compilation album contained Old Fart at Play and The Blimp.
Old Fart remains my favorite Beefheart song.
10. NUMBER OF BEEFHEART GIGS SEEN, AND WHICH YEARS:
11. ART SHOWS VISITED: 0
12. ANY CONTACT WITH DON?: No
13. MUSICAL ABILITY / TRAINING: Very little guitar & drums
14. ANY OTHER INFO YOU WISH TO ADD?:
It was extremely difficult to rate my first 6 Beefheart albums in a particular order.
Those first 6 to me can be interchangeable depending on my mood.
I did not however rank a six way tie as I felt that would be a cop out
. My top 10 other acts are not necessarily in order with the exception of perhaps the Beatles and Frank Zappa.
Also several of those acts (Walker, Ely & Hancock) may be familiar to those in and around Texas.
The census is a good idea. I am curious to see the results.
Hopefully, you will be able to publish them and share them with the members. Good work!
