Captain Beefheart Bio

Don Van Vliet (born Don Glen Vliet on January 15, 1941) is an American musician and painter, best known by the pseudonym Captain Beefheart. His musical work was mainly conducted with a rotating assembly of musicians called The Magic Band, which was active between the mid-1960s and the early 1980s. Van Vliet was chiefly a singer and harmonica player, occasionally playing saxophone and keyboards. His compositions are characterized by their odd mixtures of shifting time signatures and by their surreal lyrics, while Van Vliet himself is noted for his dictatorial approach to his musicians and for his enigmatic relationship with the public.

The Magic Band's output is rooted in blues and rock music, but its best-known work draws on more disparate influences. 1969's Trout Mask Replica takes cues from free jazz, psychedelia, and contemporary experimental composition. With its follow-up albums the group turned to more conventional rock music, but they were frustrated by a lack of commercial success and disbanded in 1974. Towards the end of the decade Van Vliet formed a new Magic Band with a group of younger musicians and produced three albums that revisited the eccentricities of his earlier work. Van Vliet's music attracted a devoted following and his influence on fellow musicians, particularly those of the punk and New Wave movements, has been described as "incalculable.
