When I was in a heavy metal band in high school in Houston, our guitarist’s dad got us into the Elevators. He had some worn out records he would bust out when someone said something was psychedelic, he was like “that shit ain’t psychedelic, sit down, listen to this, learn something.”

HulloHullo !
For my money - probly the Greatest Rawk Singer in many respects. The pipes for starters - but also coming from a place - & getting to one - like simply no one else.
Listening to the Elevators Live in SF @ the Avalon 1966 ...I have to think - damn but - they really were ahead of everyone else in some really tangible ways - just the Best.
& that Roky endured what he did - & had an entirely other Solo phase conveying something else quite distinct from TommyHall's sort of Masonic psychedelic evangelism ...there aren't a lot of comparisons.

Suffice to say the 13th Floor Elevators were truly dedicated to evangelizing for psychedelic drug use - in mid1960s Texas (let that sink in) - to an extent that reportedly made even the Grateful Dead incredulous when they made it to SanFrancisco. With the results you could predict.

Yup! Cold War weirdness.

The doc gutted me. Roky was like BrianWilson in that combination of truly great talent & weighty mental illness. Anything we got later was a triumph.

Medson, Not Roky. I dragged you to see The Good Rats around that time. Let's discuss further in AC in September.

I have that Roky Doc. It was a difficult watch. Haven't had the desire for a second viewing.

@medson, yeah I don't think I could sit through it again. Maybe just the beginning with the Elevators footage.

Back in the 80s I found a copy of the Live album at a thrift store. It had Tommy Hall's autograph on it. decades later I was able to get Roky and John Ike Walton to autograph it!

So a challenging story - but I don't hold that against the film. On the contrary. It's a doc of him - not an accounting of the Music. Which would be another - potentially great thing.

...I think for instance seeing the context of his family makes his state more understandable - & more relatable as a U.S. American story even...

...perhaps I take it for granted that anyone watching it would already understand his greatness & relevance as Musician & Artist...
