Overlooked yesterday- due to the media coverage of the deaths of Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett- was the passing of Sky Saxon, the bassist and lead singer of the psychedelic garage rock icons The Seeds.. Not quite a one-hit-wonder (along with Pushin' Too Hard, the band also scored a minor hit with Can't Seem To Make You Mine), the band was once touted by American blues great Muddy Waters as, "America's own Rolling Stones." The original band fell apart shortly after their early successes, but Saxon continued fronting different incarnations of the band for revival tours into this decade. Godspeed to one of the great names in rock 'n' roll.
