Beefheart Birthday News
Don turns 64 on Saturday 15 January and so we wish him many happy returns. Happy Birthday Don (and Happy Earthday too).

Moris Tepper talks with Don every week and says this about him, ďI donít think Iíve had a conversation with him in 20 years that he hasnít written at least one, if not 18, songs while weíre on the phone. Heís constantly going. He doesnít care if youíre on the phone or not, heís just going."

In an interview with Robert Baird in January's Stereophile magazine, Tepper continues, ďSince he quit music, but more important the last four or five years, heís really gotten sweet and nurturing, and supportive of my work."

The song Ricochet Man was co-written with Don for Tepper's album Moth to Mouth. Moris explains that it was originally an instrumental track in progress which Don heard, along with other material intended for the album.

Moris had recently met Arthur Lee, the Love guitarist, who had been released after three years in jail, "for shooting a gun off in his apartment and there wasnít anybody there." Moris says that when he told Don this story, "He (Don) goes [in a hipster whisper], 'Man, Ricochet Maní."

Don is constantly suggesting to Moris that he use some of his material, "but Iím trying to make my own work, my own statements." But, with Ricochet Man, "it felt so appropriate, so right for the record. So we got one together.Ē

Many thanks to Gene Hopstetter, Jr. for alerting us to this interview

P.S. It looks as if the Magic Band are going to be touring the UK again later this year, they're due at the Rescue Rooms in Nottingham on 31st May - my recommendation would be to try your damnedest to get to see them...

I don't know about Beefheart, but there were a lot of references to AL in the latest biography of Frank Zappa.
FZ and AL played at the same clubs on the Strip and they used to jam with each other at some of those clubs.
Anyone hear anything else about FZ and AL?
