“Where does it all lead? What will become of us? These were our young questions, and young answers were revealed. It leads to each other. We become ourselves.” —Patti Smith
You have to watch this: Roky Erickson and The Black Angels, live! Watch it before it’s taken down. The man who is credited with coining the term “psychedelic rock,” with a modern band that practices that very thing. It’s never over until it’s over. Erickson beat huge legal problems and mental illness, to return to the stage and the studio. The photo is The Black Angels playing live in Seattle last year, from my archive.
Out beyond ideas of wrong-doing
And right-doing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass
The world is too full to talk about.
