May 31, 2019: Roky Erickson, one of the pillars of Austin's rock 'n' roll scene, passed away from causes his family have not disclosed. It shook all of us in Austin up to the point where we are only now able to present our homage to this rocker of such protean power, neither genre nor era could constrain him. Let's just keep it simple: Roky Erickson rocked. Here's 16 of his best, presented without frills on his birthday - no echo, no hyperbole. R.I.P., Roky. And happy birthday.
