Captain Beefheart on the Old Grey Whistle Test in 1974.
Video Rating: four / five
Howlin Wolf was his biggest inspiration. He trained for hours to try and sound like him. Also the blue sound in his music is from listening alot to howlin wolf. I think they are both great !
This is pretty bad by Beefheart’s standards… still better than a lot of stuff out at the time, though.
@ManyGodz If you are not aware, this was taken from the dvd “the old grey whistle test vol 1″ not a cd, but at least you could listen to it when you want. Its a great dvd
Most people have know idea who Captain Beefheart is nor do they care!
beefheart still lives in my heart and mind…no one compares to the captain
1:15 to miss tossers
Wish this live version was available on CD !
Tom waits owes capt beefheart a royalties check at least
He’s so strange he’s interesting.
His voice kinda reminds me of Howlin’ Wolf.
Captain Beefheart is a human muppet!! Still have my Trout Mask 8 track. No 8 track player, but hey….things.
@politicoochie09 So close, you almost had that one.
The Captain got older, started acting, and became Bryan Lee Cranston!
what a fucking legend
36 lame dogs
36 people are vegetarian
shut the fuck up and play the song
you oundits r rubbish
scaring voice !!
rip captain , rip john peel who loved you so much . hope your together somewhere !
@Shagrat65 Anytime I watch anything live by beefheart I think that too…. but this one’s definitely better than the studio version to me
@zephyr89s How does physical apperance make a difference? I’m willing to bet you’re an ugly cunt.
@parachutebinge Fuck you you cunt. I will track your IP and murder you and your family. I will rape your mother over and over again until her ass bleeds.
@zephyr89s lol, that is him. captain beefheart was secretly adolf hitler. he faked his death, moved to america and became a rock legend. hahaha!!!
Its weird, I have to say the live version is better than the studio version. Anyone else think so?
@jcfbell3001 what next to your cardboard box
