Roky Erickson dies

Truly unique talent. Much troubled but absolutely legendary. Fulfilled an ambition of seeing him live when he played Jarvis Cocker's Meltdown at the RFH in 2007. 'You're Gonna Miss Me'. Certainly will, chap.

Love the 13th Floor Elevators. One of the best bands of an era. Them, the VU and the Stooges effectively created modern rock music.

You can take your 'Beatles are the greatest band evah's' they never even came close to either of the first two elevator albums. Come togeather, feck off, slip inside this house or reverberation mothafukers

They tend to sit with 'Bands I should like but don't' with me. I admire their activism in what was a very hostile environment, but they don't really do it for me. Always a Stooges man.

There is some amazing live footage of MC5 on YouTube - they never really made the great records the Stooges made, but they must have been incredible live.
RIP Roky.

Yes, seen most of it.
