Goodnight Austin, Texas, Wherever You Are!

I thought it was a man, but it was a muffin.

From Rolling Stone:

Don Van Vliet, who became a rock legend as Captain Beefheart, died today from complications from multiple sclerosis in California. His passing was announced by the New York-based Michael Werner Gallery, which represented his work as a painter.

Trout Mask Replica is regarded as his magnum opus, but my fave is the album that he did with Frank Zappa, Bongo Fury, whose live portions were recorded at the old Armadillo World Headquarters in Austin.
