John French, far left.
From a recently published interview conducted by David Sinclair, regarding Drumbo\’s \”Beefheart: Through the Eyes of Magic\”:
\”He was a bully and a tyrant, but it\’s like a family thing.
Your brother or your sister might treat you like crap, but they\’re still family.\”
John Ravenscroft Peel.
