    Amusing Beefheart story.
    Sometime around 1970-71 in L.A. there was some sort of benefit concert. I can't remember the beneficiary nor the venue. Many times these types of shows throw together various acts that would never share a stage normally. This was true in this case and I can't remember who else was on the bill, but I was there to see the Captain. I have a feeling that many in the audience may not have been familiar with Captain Beefheart and had no idea what was in store for them. It seemed like within seconds of the music starting, people were running for the exits. I'd never seen anything like it.
    I remember Beefheart saying something to the effect of "when they leave, I know I'm doing good."
