One of the first psychedelic bands, The 13th. Floor Elevators, were really a garage band from Austin, Texas. While their 1966 song "You're Gonna Miss Me" only charted at #55 it was an enormously influtional record. Singer/guitarist Roky Eckerson suffered with schizophrenia for many years yet still continues to tour as a solo act.
Vertical asked me to join his blog as a guest expert on "Nuggets" era music... Psychedelic, Garage and Fuzz. Are there others more qualified? You bet, but they weren't asked. He's also letting me write about anything I want… We'll see.
Want to buy something from me? Of course you do. You might just find a treasure here at my eBay store.
