R.I.P. Rocky Erickson

Rocky should be as iconic as Jim Morrison. A pioneer, and a victim, and a survivor.....Rest in peace.

I honestly had never heard of Mr. Erickson nor 13th Floor Elevators. As a youngster in the 60s I relied on the music my big sisters listened to. Shame on me.

I checked out the article in The Guardian about him and listened to the two songs, then I looked up the lyrics to Slip Inside This House. I've never seen anything quite like them!

Sad news. I'd see Rocky waiting for his lift at the HEB grocery store here in South Austin at least once a month. Very sweet guy. Loved seeing and talking with him. Glad he was able to bounce back so many years later and start playing again. RIP Rocky!
