Captain Beefheart, Legendary Avant Garde Musician and Reclusive Trinidad Resident, Dies

Posted on Fri, Dec 17, 2010 at 2:39 PM

Rolling Stone reports that he died today due to complications from multiple sclerosis. Entertainment Weekly adds that he passed away "in a northern California hospital." We'll see what we can get.

UPDATE: Assistant Coroner Charlie Van Buskirk that Beefheart died at Mad River Hospital early this morning. He knows this only because hospital staff called him with a procedural question at around 6 a.m.
