RIP Sky Saxon

Sky Saxon passed in Austin, TX. What's a Sky Saxon, you ask? He was the frontman for The Seeds.

Enjoy this 1967 clip. Man, people weren't even trying to lip-synch that well at the time, huh? One camera, one take on live TV and someone's sticking a needle on a 45 for the studio audience because that's the tech you've got. No wonder these are always comically mistimed.

Too soon for the joke? The headstone: "He pushed too hard"
