Roky Erickson (2007)

Sadly lost in 2019, the singer and composer Roky Erickson is one of the great influences of the bands that perform psychedelia today. This is especially due to the legacy left with his band, the legendary 13th Floor Elevators, who were pioneers of the genre that obtained an incredible mass success in the 60s. Erickson inspired a respect from the bands of an entire generation, leading to the release of a tribute album in 1990 in which important artists such as Jesus and Mary Chain, ZZ Top, and R.E.M. covered some of his best compositions.
