The world has lost one of psychedelia's greatest artists. What sad news to wake up to.

RIP Roky. As the man said.. 'You're Gonna Miss Me'...

Sad news indeed.
I'm going to see Primal Scream tomorrow, I suspect 'Slip Inside This House' will get an airing.
A fashionable cynicism, the poison they want you to drink. Oh no man that's so easy, oh no man that's too easy.

It's saddening. I have one personal opinion - i think that the best rock'n'roll documentary is "MC5: The Testimonial". Behind that hand in hand comes (un)holy trinity of rockumentaries: "You're gonna miss me: A film about Roky Erickson", "The Devil and Daniel Johnston" and "Last days here - The story of Bobby Liebling". All three are/were geniuses, but flew too high and got burnt thanks to their relentless lifestyle and not backing down from their artistic level. Rest in peace, Roky.

Sad day. Feel fortunate to have caught him the remaining members of the 13th Floor Elevators at Levitation in Austin a few years back. Godspeed brother.
I think I feel it coming on
