I learned of Don Van Vliet through my interest in Frank Zappa's music. Don, also known as Captain Beefheart, grew up with Frank and ended up recording and touring with him. Don separated with Frank and continued his musical career as Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band. In the '80s he gave up music to concentrate on his painting where he made a successful career as an artist. Don died on December 17, 2010. He will be missed.
