Captain Beefheart

Ben Edmonds, ZigZag, August 1970

Beefheart is and always was a Zigzag hero; we get more letter about him than any other artists, I should think – asking for news and articles. This piece, reprinted from Creem magazine, contains a lot of information which will already be known to Zigzag readers, but there are some interesting quotes from the Captain and news of his new band and next album.
