A Seed Dies


Well this blog is just full of great news the past 24 hours. I know I just covered the passing of MJ, which I'm sure many blogs have done or will be doing, but we lost another musician yesterday as well, Sky Saxon of The Seeds. The Seeds were an LA based 60s garage rock band who never really made it that big outside of the California vicinity. They had a couple popular tunes such as "Pushin' Too Hard" which was named one of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll as well as "Can't Seem To Make You Mine". The band broke up and reformed many times with Saxon as the only member in all incarnations, between these stints with The Seeds Saxon worked on other musical interests. Sky Saxon passed away in Austin, TX at age 63, possibly due to an infection of the internal organs.


Here are three covers the The Seeds tune "Can't Seem To Make You Mine":
