RIP ::: DIDDY WAH DIDDY!

American musical genius Captain Beefheart [Don Van Vliet] and his magic Band are one of those mid-1960s groups whose songs lived on thru the 69-70s "Psychedelic" music craze along with other underrateds like "Love" and "The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band" and obscure tunes like the original version of "She's A Very Lovely Woman" (popularized by Linda Rondstadt) and "Live" by the Merry-Go-Round.

Truth be told, there was such a volcanic wash of music between 1966 and 1969, it's no surprise that a lot of sounds (like DIDDY WAH DIDDY) got lost in the lava. That was at a time when people in, say, Denver CO had never heard the #1 single in Chicago, and vice-versa!

Captain B recorded 12 studio albums between 1965 and 1982!

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
