RIP: Sky Saxon

June 25th, 2009, 3:46 pm by Greg

Sky Saxon – founder of the quintessential ’60s garage band the Seeds – passed away this morning in Austin, Texas.

With their raw, wild, proto-psychedelic sounds, Sky and his band planted the seeds for the ’60s musical revolution with their classic rock nugget, “Pushing Too Hard.”
