You know I love Roky Erickson come Halloween time because of his lyrics that are about superantural phenomena but I'd like him just the same for his 50's like guitar parts and wailing voice. I think I've mentioned before how unfortunate it is that his lyrics, in the late 70s and going on, are most likely to be attributed to the time he spend in a psych ward undergoing shock therapy. A healthy dose of blame can also go to his drug consumption, especially psychadelics. He's has a long life and recently its been on the up-swing so that's good to know. I just hope I get the chance to see him someday. He's a true character in the history of rock 'n' roll. If you dig this look for his other stuff solo and as part of the 13th Floor Elevators.
