    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 :)

    He’s so strange he’s interesting.

    His voice kinda reminds me of Howlin’ Wolf.

    @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.

  22. LordRassy says:

    @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.
