I saw Don for the first time at the Free Trade Hall, Manchester, we hired a coach from Sheffield and couldn't believe we were experiencing Beefheart, he left us breathless and begging for more and ever since has become an icon. My husband Pat revealed him to me and many people in Sheffield and his music, art and poetry will always be close to my heart, miss you, happy love song, gonna booglarize you baby and you're safe as milk, God Bless you and keep your family

from the very first time I heard van vliets music I fell in love with it, that was 1970, the love for his music and art really has grown for me, guess it always will, love over gold. rick caldwell fairfield ohio

The quality of my life was improved to have his music as a companion, and his creative tenacity unfettered by an influence has continually been an inspiration to me. I wish I could have just sat with him one time.
