Sky Saxon of the Seeds passes

The Seeds were hippies. But they also had an raw edge to their music that influenced garage bands and punk. Their lead singer Sky Saxon died today in Austin. Pushing Too Hard was a major hit and remains a classic.

Lots of celebs dying, aren’t there? What can one say about Michael Jackson? Seems a tortured life at the end. But when rumors of his death started traveling, the internet slowed noticeably. Twitter search became unusable and the LA Times website was timing out.
