I've never heard any of his stuff.

I have read Sprout Mask Replica though, not sure that counts?

Captain Beefheart was definitely an acquired taste and effectively died ,as far as the music world is concerned ,in the early Eighties when he retired from making music and concentrated on his art . A sad , but not wholy unexpected ,loss .

Off to put on " Big eyed beans from Venus "

Sad news.

Only own one album "Safe As Milk", but it's superb, highly recommended.
