It’s a sad day today for Rock & Roll. Cramps lead singer Lux Interior passed on yesterday from an ongoing heart ailment,at 62 years old. Lux was an extraordinary personality, talent, record collector, and overall mad genius. His contribution to Rock & Roll was truly unique, being the true inventor and instigator of Psychobilly and horror rock. I remember seeing the Cramps live at Perkin’s Palace in Pasadena, around 1980 or so. It was one of those life changing gigs for me as a teenager and I’ll never forget what a great showman Mr. Lux was, especially when he shoved the entire end of the microphone in his mouth. “Don’t try this at home folks.”
Thank you for being You-Lux Interior-R.I.P.
