“Roky Erickson, Austin Opry House, 1977. I’ve known Roky since 1972. I don’t have room here to discuss all that should be said about him. He’s been called the father of psychedelic rock, and punk rock. His first real band, The 13th Floor Elevators, changed the arc of music everywhere with their influential albums from 1965, especially “Easter Everywhere”. Roky had, and still largely has, the most amazing voice. Perfect for rock music. If it wasn’t for the mental issues he’s dealt with since his exposure to the medieval methods employed to treat mental illness in the late ’60s, (shock treatments, etc) who knows how different his career might have been. In any case, the folks in Austin love and respect him. Here, he’s looking pretty good. He is a genius, no doubt.” — Photo © copyright 1977 Scott Newton
