Youre Gonna Miss Me Erickson
Roky Erickson has one of those great voices that seem to come out of the ether and define what we now come to regard as essentially psychedelic. You can't escape its magnificence anymore than you will never tire from hearing it. That it comes from such a sweet guy and, as we learn from this documentary, traversed a path that could easily have ended in tragedy only enhances its brilliance. His is a story that seems to traject us to a time and a place that mixes an eccentric and talented family with the archaic marijuana laws of the period to put Roky in a setting that hopefully wouldn't happen today. That he has come out the other side to be once again performing and establishing his place as one of the pivotal figures in our Rock 'n' Roll history is wonderful and no doubt enhanced by films like this.Get your Youre Gonna Miss Me Erickson Now!
