Profile information for Don Van Vliet
I’m interested in playing, not working.
Don Van Vliet (pronounced /væn ˈvliːt/; born Don Glen Vliet, January 15, 1941) is an American musician and artist best known by the stage name Captain Beefheart. His musical work was conducted with a rotating ensemble of musicians called The Magic Band, which was active between 1965 and 1982, with whom he recorded 12 studio albums. Noted for his powerful, idiosyncratic singing voice with its wide range, Van Vliet also occasionally played the harmonica, saxophone, bass clarinet and keyboards. Van Vliet’s music blended rock, blues and psychedelia with free jazz, avant-garde and contemporary experimental composition.It characteristically features a mix of shifting time signatures and complex rhythms, atonal melodies, jagged, dissonant guitar playing, and surreal, often humorous and poetic lyrics, crafted through his challenging and often dictatorial control over his musicians.
During his teen years in Lancaster, California, Van Vliet acquired an eclectic musical taste and befriended Frank Zappa, a companion with whom he sporadically competed and collaborated. He began performing with his Captain Beefheart persona in 1964 and joined the original Magic Band in 1965. The group drew attention and acclaim with their first album in 1967 on Buddah Records, the blues-rock-rooted Safe as Milk. After being dropped by two consecutive record labels, they then signed to Frank Zappa’s newly formed Straight Records. Zappa as a producer granted Beefheart the unrestrained artistic freedom to compose 1969’s Trout Mask Replica, ranked fifty-eighth in Rolling Stone magazine’s 2003 list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. Frustrated with a lack of commercial success after seven studio albums, and fed up with Van Vliet’s abuse, paranoia and authoritarianism, The Magic Band disbanded in 1974. After a brief and critically panned flirtation with more conventional rock music, resulting in two albums he later disowned, Beefheart then formed a new Magic Band with a group of younger musicians and regained contemporary prominence through three final albums (1978–82) that returned him to the eccentricities of his earlier work.
Van Vliet has since been described as “one of modern music’s true innovators” with “a singular body of work virtually unrivalled in its daring and fluid creativity”. Although an iconoclast who received few critical accolades from those who often perceived him to have been willingly unlistenable, and never achieved mainstream success during his musical career, he has in recent years attained a devoted cult following as a “highly significant” and “incalculable” influence on an array of New Wave, punk, post-punk, experimental and alternative rock musicians.
Van Vliet is known for his enigmatic personality and relationship with the public; he has made few public appearances since his retirement from music (and from his Beefheart persona) in 1982 to abruptly devote himself to a career in art, an interest that originated in his childhood talent for sculpture. His critically respected paintings and drawings, variously described as abstract, neo-expressionist, modernist, figurative and primitivist, demand high prices and have been exhibited in several countries. – wikipedia

Information for Lillian Gish
Quote: “I never approved of talkies. Silent movies were well on their way to developing an entirely new art form. It was not just pantomine, but something wonderfully expressive.”
“The First Lady of the Silent Screen,” Lillian Gish was the movie industry’s first true actress. A pioneer of fundamental film performing techniques, she was the first star to recognize the many crucial differences between acting for the stage and acting for the screen, and while her contemporaries painted their performances in broad, dramatic strokes, Gish delivered finely etched, nuanced turns carrying a stunning emotional impact. While by no means the biggest or most popular actress of the silent era, she was the most gifted, her seeming waiflike frailty masking unparalleled reserves of physical and spiritual strength. More than any other early star, she fought to earn film recognition as a true art form, and her achievements remain the standard against which those of all other actors are measured.
Born Lillian de Guiche October 14, 1893, in Springfield, OH, Gish, her younger sister, Dorothy, and their mother, actress Mary Gish, soon relocated to New York. Beginning their acting careers not long after, the girls were in short time the family breadwinners. Among their colleagues was another child actress, Mary Pickford, who in 1909 traveled west to Hollywood to pursue a career in the movies. She found work with the famed director D.W. Griffith, and soon persuaded him to recruit the Gish sisters for his Biograph Studios’ repertory company of actors. Lillian and Dorothy debuted together in 1912’s An Unseen Enemy and over the next several years appeared both together and independently in dozens of the director’s one- and two-reelers. While overshadowed by Pickford’s fame, Lillian was the Griffith stable’s most skilled actress, and she starred in many of his greatest works, including 1915’s The Birth of a Nation, 1916’s Intolerance, 1920’s Way Down East, and 1922’s Orphans of the Storm.
With her delicate, luminous beauty, Gish was perfect for Griffith’s Victorian-styled melodramas; wide-eyed and restrained, her face a marvel of innocence and nuance, she was nothing less than ideal for Griffith’s landmark use of close-up photography. Together, they worked from opposite sides of the camera to push the new medium from lowbrow entertainment into the realm of serious art. In 1920, under Griffith’s tutelage, Gish even directed her own film, Remodeling Her Husband, a vehicle for her sister. She left Griffith in 1923, landing at MGM to star in such literary projects as 1926’s La Boheme and The Scarlet Letter. In 1930, she made her first sound film, One Romantic Night. Longing to return to Broadway — and considered a fading star around Hollywood — she made only one film over the course of the next 13 years, 1933’s His Double Life. Instead, she became a fixture of the stage in productions, including 1930’s Uncle Vanya, 1936’s The Old Maid, and 1937’s The Star Wagon. She also played Ophelia opposite John Gielgud’s titular Hamlet, and in 1932 published the book Life and Lillian Gish.
A supporting role in 1943’s The Commandos Strike at Dawn signalled Gish’s return to film. Four years later, she received her first Oscar nomination for her work in the acclaimed Duel in the Sun. However, after 1948’s Portrait of Jennie, Gish again exited Hollywood for the stage, and did not return to movies prior to 1955’s The Cobweb. Later that same year, she also co-starred in Charles Laughton’s classic The Night of the Hunter and infrequently appeared on television. After 1967’s The Comedians, Gish largely retired from acting, penning a second memoir, The Movies, Mr. Griffith and Me, two years later. In 1971, she won a special Academy Award for her “superlative artistry” and in 1977 co-starred in Robert Altman’s A Wedding. After being honored in 1984 by the American Film Institute, in 1987, she accepted her final starring role, opposite Bette Davis, in The Whales of August. Lillian Gish died in New York City on February 27, 1993.
Yay for Lillian Gish!
Richard Hell should be added to the cast of Desperately Seeking Susan
Profile information for Dee Dee Ramone
I’d like to congratulate myself, and thank myself, and give myself a big pat on the back.
Dee Dee Ramone, born Douglas Glenn Colvin, (September 18, 1951 – June 5, 2002) was a German-American songwriter and bassist, best remembered as a founding member of the punk rock band The Ramones. He was also known for his distinctive count-in style, used to start off many Ramones songs.
Though nearly all of the Ramones’ songs were credited equally to all the band members, Dee Dee was the group’s most prolific lyricist and songwriter, penning songs such as “53rd & 3rd”, “Commando”, “Rockaway Beach” and “Poison Heart”. He was the bass guitarist for the group from their formation in 1974 through 1989, although at first he wanted to play the guitar. He then left to pursue a short-lived career in hip hop music under the name Dee Dee King. Afterwards, he returned to his punk roots and released three little-known solo albums featuring brand new songs (many were used later on Ramones records). He toured the world playing his songs, Ramones songs and some old favorites in small clubs and continued to write songs for the Ramones until 1996, when the band retired.
Dee Dee struggled with drug addiction for much of his life, especially heroin; he began using drugs as a teenager, and continued to use for the majority of his adult life. He seemed to clean up his act in the early 1990s and to remain clean for most of that decade. He died from a drug overdose in 2002. – wikipedia
