I would lika ZFT release portuguese lunar landing


Are you referring to the original "Bat Chain Puller" sessions? Denny Wally once stated that Gail was gonna release that. However, at the rate their going, it probably won't be in my lifetime. :(


No, you can read about that song here: http://globalia.net/donlope/fz/songs/Portuguese_Lunar_Landing.html

Orig. Bat Chain Puller would be golden though

Semi-on topic, but more of a general question;
Are there any recent stories about Don's current activities and his state of health?
I know he retired from music to paint and he's been successful at it, and there was the documentary in the early 90s, but I'm mainly curious about his illness.
Does anyone have the reliable hot poop?

I just finished Mike Barnes' Beefheart biography, released in 2004, so the poop has had 5 years to cool, but it's still hotter than the documentary.
Anyway, I got the impression that he was feeling well except for his sclerosis, which makes him wheelchair-bound. I guess he stays inside painting or hanging out with his wife most of the time. He lives separated from any urban area, so it's wild life along with his wife ;)
