Roky Erickson was the singer and guitarist of The 13th Floor Elevators psychedelic rock band founded in 1965. Other members include Tommy Hall, Benny Thurman, Stacy Sutherland, and John Ike Walton. Later, after being released from Rusk State Hospital for the Criminally Insane in 1972, Roky Erickson, restarted his musical career. Roky's 1970's sound was different than that of The 13th Floor Elevators. Listen to Tank Riot's Roky Erickson show to learn more!
