Roky Erickson RIP
The passing of folks who fly a little too close to the sun has become a measurable output of our world and certainly of these times. Today in my own small way I celebrate someone who lived close to the sun and didn't die until he had done all kinds of great things. Roky Erickson was an innovator and a creative pillar for three generations of American music creators. His exit from this world does nothing to diminish his deep, lasting impact to the music community. He served to inspire and engage like no one else. A creator who challenged boundaries and makes space for other artists; a treasure.
