Happy Birthday Roky and Johnny

roky johnny

Two of my favorite artists were born on this day, Roky Erickson (July 15th, 1947) & Johnny Thunders (July 15th, 1952)
Both of them have suffered from their own personal demons, Roky from mental illness and Johnny from drug addiction, but when they were both at the top of their game….it was a sight to behold.

Roky Erickson – I Walked With A Zombie

Johnny Thunders – Born To Lose

Exiled New Englander now living in Canada. I dream in Spanish but can’t speak it. I wish I’d grown up as an old black man playin’ the blues just like my father.
