Sky Saxon RIP

Sky Saxon, leader of 60s "flower punks" the Seeds and author of one of my favorite songs of all time (see below), passed away this morning. Literally a few moments after I heard the news, CNN reported that Farrah Fawcett also met her demise today, so it's looking unlikely that Sky's passing will get any coverage from any mainstream media outlets. This is unfortunate as surely the composer of the below made a considerable contribution to culture:

Obviously, just a few a hours later, even bigger news broke.

Yeah, "Can't Seem To Make You Mine" has been one of my favorite songs for a long time (although it's the version sung by Alex Chilton on "Dusted In Memphis").

Someone else in music died today too, um.. so much for guessing that Farrah Fawcett was going to get all the ink.
