    “his shit was totally indierock ”

    Are you fucking serious???

    That’s the best you can say about an artist of his stature???

    Do ya think they’ll use this for his epitaph?

      Hey “Don” – of course not. I think the music speaks for itself. Those who know Beefheart’s work will know it’s lasting importance and influence. You can head over to the New York Times for something more eloquent.

    One of a kind.

    Anyway, I’ve created a raucous (albeit non-Beefheartian), original “Christmas carol” and made it into a music video that’s irreverent and sacrilegious, but more importantly, will have you humming along as the Bailey’s spurts out your nose. “It’s Christmas! Let’s Shop for Jesus” is 1:20 seconds, and I’m hoping that you could take a look/listen. Then, after you mop up the Bailey’s, please consider posting it. It’s timely, it’s catchy, and, above all, it’s fun.

    Thanks for being there.
