Let's remember Jeff Cotton, aka Antennae Jimmy Semens of Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band, even though he's not dead. .
It's obvious why Antennae Jimmy Semens and Zoot Horn Rollo aren't on any of the top-guitarists-of-all-time lists: the implications of their inclusion would knock 9/10ths of the other players off the list! Anyway, Jeff (in the yellow cap and striped dress) seemed to suffer the most severely from the cult-like conditions of the Trout Mask House, having had some ribs broken during a "talk." But all great art requires suffering of one kind or another, and Trout Mask Replica will always remain a singular artistic achievement. Thank you, Jeff! .
Also a bunch of pink for the young people (hbd @prairie.fairy). .
