The Captain has left the building.
  Sat. 12/18/10 3:15am osvi:

Beefheart rock forever! Thanks, Bill...
  Sat. 12/18/10 3:15am Bill Mac:

My eyes fill with water.... salt water
  Sat. 12/18/10 3:17am osvi:

i need to get me some of that Diddy Wah Diddy action..
  Sat. 12/18/10 3:19am Steve:

Strange, I went to the library yesterday for a Stevie Wonder book and came home with one for him and five for Zappa, the other wonder from Lancaster.
  Sat. 12/18/10 3:25am jamesie:

The rug's wearing out that we walk on
Sonn it will fray 'n we'll drop
Dead into yesterday
Must the breathing pay for those who breathe in 'n don't
Breathe out
  Sat. 12/18/10 3:26am Bill Mac:

Welcome to the celebration folks....
  Sat. 12/18/10 3:29am Patrick:

Thanks to you and the Captain. Up all night on the west coast listening.
  Sat. 12/18/10 3:33am Bill Mac:

Great Patrick.... 3 hours of Beef and related... sit back and enjoy
  Sat. 12/18/10 3:34am Larry:

Morning Bill. Europe also sings your praises. You look quite dapper too with the hat.
  Sat. 12/18/10 3:59am jamesie:

Aaaah youth!
  Sat. 12/18/10 4:06am Bill Mac:

Yeah that's me alright Larry, cept w/o the hair
  Sat. 12/18/10 4:28am John:

Enjoying the music and pictures. Thanks for the great tribute, Bill.
  Sat. 12/18/10 4:29am Bill Mac:

Pictures are compliments of Ms Mac.... Thanks John, this is an honor and a blast
  Sat. 12/18/10 4:57am coalhard:

  Sat. 12/18/10 4:59am Looms:

Hello Bill and everyone.
Another sad news in the morning... RIP Don!
  Sat. 12/18/10 4:59am Stanley:

Just tuned in and read the sad news. Nearly cried then began to smile. Thank you Captain Beefheart, wherever you are.
  Sat. 12/18/10 5:04am Bill Mac:

I know exactly what you mean Stan
  Sat. 12/18/10 5:05am annie:

happy to be here.. love all this beefheart, used to know all the words.
  Sat. 12/18/10 5:06am Bill Mac:

and I'm diggin the Exclamation point Looms... RIP Don! Have a nice day!
  Sat. 12/18/10 5:08am annie:

great photos!! makes me tear up, too
  Sat. 12/18/10 5:10am Bill Mac:

Glad to see the women representing here.... Welcome Annie
  Sat. 12/18/10 5:17am (mta) Tony:

Great show, Bill. Hi annie.
  Sat. 12/18/10 5:18am annie:

hey bill, i ve been a fan since the beginning!! we loved his style.. went so against the grain. even preferred him over zappa sometimes.
  Sat. 12/18/10 5:19am annie:

morning tony!
  Sat. 12/18/10 5:20am annie:

i'm so glad i woke up early this morning.. ..
  Sat. 12/18/10 5:23am coalhard:

this show is like a bowl of MAC and cheese-sure it's hard to wash the bowl-but tastes good going down
  Sat. 12/18/10 5:23am Bill Mac:

I think Zappa preferred him over himself sometimes. Might not have had the chops FZ had, but he was certainly tapped into some other vibe.... and I also wondered why it was suggested that he alienated women... anyway... glad you're all here
  Sat. 12/18/10 5:23am Steve:

A nice quality clip of Beefheart doing 'This Is The Day' in 1974 on BBC's "Old Grey Whistle Test" (94 MB)
  Sat. 12/18/10 5:24am Looms:

Thanks Bill, so do you! I have to use an exclamation point to be heard from here. The guy was talented and very genuine, it's a great loss; even if he had retired from music.
  Sat. 12/18/10 5:27am annie:

that's funny what you said about alienating wpmen; glad i never read the reviews when i was young. we dug him. i dug his words and games with music.
  Sat. 12/18/10 5:29am Bill Mac:

I would think that anyone that liked music because it was fun woulda got him you know? Long live the music is all I gotta say...
  Sat. 12/18/10 5:31am (mta) Tony:

annie, are you my buddy from Jersey or annie from yesterday? How are we to know you apart if you both have the same name? I think one of you should capitalize her "A". At the MTA, we go by seniority. So who's got more seniority, you or her? I think the junior annie should change her name to Annie so we know who's who.

Bill, this is a great show man. I don't have all these albums you're playing so I went to investigate prices and some are very expensive. Yea, Archives!
  Sat. 12/18/10 5:33am Bill Mac:

Stay away from Bluejeans and Moonbeams and 100% guaranteed.... You have been warned
  Sat. 12/18/10 5:35am annie:

we grew up with poetry, word games, lots of eclectic music, and pretty liberal parents.....so circumstances were on my side. tony: a thorough check of the comments archives would be the solution to the seniority issue. i am the annie from this week, as i think the other annie shows up only occasionally. the only issue i have with attaching a number or designator to my name would be getting those who know me to adjust to a new name, but it IS a thought!
  Sat. 12/18/10 5:41am (mta) Tony:

That's cool; I'll just treat you equally with respect without knowing to whom I'm writing. Sure sounds like you've had a very cool and lucky childhood. Since you used to know the lyrics, this must be a very special show for you, thanks to Mr. Mac.
  Sat. 12/18/10 5:47am Stanley:

This is truly one of the best shows we have had in recent years. One to listen to again and again. Wonder what Bill chooses to end it?
  Sat. 12/18/10 5:48am annie:

i am so digging this. and the next time i see my doppelganger, i'll ask her if she wants to have a differentiating symbol for ourselves. :)
  Sat. 12/18/10 5:49am Bill Mac:

I got one.... no brainer....
  Sat. 12/18/10 5:50am Stanley:

I'm gonna freak no matter!
  Sat. 12/18/10 5:50am coalhard:

if had to guess DON'T EAT YELLER SNOW --but just a prediction
  Sat. 12/18/10 5:51am Stanley:

No, no, no guessing.
  Sat. 12/18/10 5:54am Stanley:

  Sat. 12/18/10 5:58am Bill Mac:

You folks were awesome... Thanks for coming. LONG LIVE DON!!!!
  Sat. 12/18/10 5:58am annie:

wonderful show mac, thanks..
  Sat. 12/18/10 5:59am (mta) Tony:

We all really had a nice party tonight in good memory of a legend. Thanks Bill. Goodnight all...
  Sat. 12/18/10 6:10am ?:

lots of thxs for mr van vliet
  Sat. 12/18/10 6:13am coalhard:

thanks don !!
  Sat. 12/18/10 1:22pm riburr:

Best shoes I ever herd, as the horse compared his hooves.
  Mon. 12/20/10 1:13am Martin:

Thanks for the Beefheart. Came to him via John Peel, being a little too young to have caught the wave the first time.
  Wed. 1/12/11 6:30pm Dave:

I missed what the music under you when you are speaking was. what is it? its great!
  Sun. 1/16/11 11:17pm Bill Mac:

As much as I dislike speaking over anything Beefheart, that song provided a nice music bed for the spaces between sets. The song is from Beefheart and the Band's last album together, called "Ice Cream for Crow", and is entitled "Semi-Multicolored Caucasian". It's my favorite of the Beefheart instrumental tracks.
