Arguably the inventor of Musical Genre Hybridization: Don Van Vliet died today, he was 69.

For a psychedelic trip you won't forget investigate his life, music, art and work.

Tell us something.: Been a fluter, citternist, and uilleann piper; committed now to the way of the harp.

I'll bet the first thing he says to Saint Peter is, "Gimme dat harp, boy."
