RIP Sky Saxon

I just found out that Sky Saxon, the lead singer of the Seeds, died on the same day as Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson. The Seeds were the type of mid-60's glorified garage band that made my mother yell, 'TURN OFF THAT HONKY-TONK!!" Their biggest hit was "Pushin' Too Hard", and I also remember a song called "The Wind Blows Your Hair". After the 60's, Sky joined a cult called The Source Family and moved to Hawaii. He kept making music, though, and oddly, he died in Austin.

I'm sure there are better videos of "Pushin' Too Hard" available, but I'm posting this one because it made me laugh (which I needed to do today), and because this is my blog, and I can. :) Enjoy it! It's gassy!!

That really IS groovy and gassy! It just made me want to dance! :) It looks like it is from The Mothers-in-Laws sitcom, which I hadn't thought about in years.
