RIP Sky Saxon

Lost amid the hoopla over MJ's untimely demise, former Seeds bassist and front man Sky Saxon died this week. He was 71. Sky's snarling vocals and powerful playing were hugely influential to thousands of aspiring garage bands around the world. He largely faded from public view and never achieved the level of fame that many nof his peers did. But unlike some of his contemporaries, like Roky Erikson and Syd Barrett, he didn't descend into mental and physical decline.

Sky joined the Source Family commune in 1970 and remained with it until his death. He continued to perform in various bands for the rest of his life.
