R.I.P. LUX INTERIOR
Erick Lee Purkhiser, better known as Lux Interior, the voice of The Cramps, died Wednesday due to heart problems. There are conflicting reports of his age. Some say 60, some say 62.
His Los Angeles Times obit is HERE.
I'll give him a decent tribute Sunday night on Terrell's Sound World, probably just after the 11th Hour (Mountain Time) on KSFR.
In the meantime, here's a couple of videos.
