Default Gulfport Doc's Inventive Past

Just ran across these YouTube videos of Doc (Art Tripp of Mothers of Invention and Captain Beefheart fame) telling his musical story.

Not just a pretty face!

Enjoy...

(Hope you don't mind, Doc...?)

Heh, heh. Thanks for the plug, PJ.. The interview was recorded as a part of the DVD, "Frank Zappa and The Mothers Of Invention In The 1960s" by Prism Films. It was done several years back, but I remember it well because, of the many interviews, articles and books I've done over the years, I actually got paid for that one!

The interview was over an hour long, but it was obviously broken up into about 14 segments for posting on You Tube. Zappa/MOI fans will find it interesting. Others may fall asleep..

Very cool! I see on youtube there are 14 parts to the documentary...which parts are you in, Doc?

Also, Doc, any chance you were with the band when the Mothers played Ravinia in 1969 or 1970? I hopped the fence and saw the show for absolutely free!

You can probably find out about that and more here: Art Tripp on Wikipedia.

An interesting tidbit from that article:

Also known as:
Ed Marimba
Ted Cactus
Artie "With the Green Mustache" Tripp


So Doc... are there any pics of you with the green mustache?

pj <- don't shoot the messenger

Doc, Do you remember Sketter from Moby Grape? Bass player who moved to Santa Cruz and lived there until his early demise. Fun guy and loved music.

I remember seeing that one or a similar picture back in the day....lol way cool look Doc. as i remember it i always thought that picture WAS Captain Beefheart...lol I was mainly a Dead/New Riders/Allman Bros/Bluegrass fan back in the early 70's until a eclectic /biker/artist/audiophile friend we rode around with introduced us to Zappa/Beefheart so we always included them in our play lists. Lots of fun times and good music back then. I watched a lot of your interview clips since PJ posted the link, enjoyed them.
