Arguably the most challenging artist of the rock era, the man formerly known as Don Van Vliet is highly revered amongst the ever-increasing fanbase of his in-the-know fans. This documentary film traces the roots and history of the iconic musical legend, Captain Beefheart. Featuring live and studio performances, interspersed with contributions from virtually all members of the Magic Band along with a panel of esteemed experts, the film showcases rarely seen promotional films, interview footage with Beefheart, television clips, and location shots. Learn about the song-writing process, band dynamics, and the influence of blues and R&B. Quite simply the best film about the man and his music, this is the story of Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band, from their debut album Safe as Milk through the success of Ice Cream for Crow, including his early friendship and collaboration with Frank Zappa.
