I really hope this is bullshit.
one of my favourite frontmen ever
Smell Of Female is probably my favourite ever live album
I'm still hoping this is a crap rumour since all I can find on google links back to the daily swarm.
i'm hoping this is bullshit
see what I did there
saw The Cramps twice at the Astoria, unforgettable shows
I'm glad Pitchfork posted the best picture of him, though
first ron asheton, now this? 2009 = bullshit.
were you just ignored as a child or something? Your attempts at appearing incendiary and controversial with your remarks on this forum are seriously fucking lame. You are a tool. If you don't understand why you are a complete prick, I would be more than happy to meet up with you and explain it further. Moderators ban this prick....please.
check the spelling.
One of the scariest live shows I've ever been to and one of the funniest also, he rocked in a way most could only dream about
i was just listenin to the Cramps last night. chills.
RIP Lux, my thoughts are with Ivy x
bikini girls with machine guns so much !! R.I.P, 60 is too young...
this really really sucks!
Rest in peace, Lux. :.(
One of the great frontmen. RIP Lux.
i'll bet he'll be laid to rest with a fantastic kitschy funeral - as it should be. RIP.
Watching the video of them at Napa State Mental Hospital and smiling in his memory.
Rest in peace Lux.
I really liked The Cramps. Poor guy.....
For Immediate Release:
February 4, 2009
Lux Interior, lead singer of The Cramps, passed away this morning due to an existing heart condition at Glendale Memorial Hospital in Glendale, California at 4:30 AM PST today. Lux has been an inspiration and influence to millions of artists and fans around the world. He and wife Poison Ivy’s contributions with The Cramps have had an immeasurable impact on modern music.
The Cramps emerged from the original New York punk scene of CBGB and Max’s Kansas City, with a singular sound and iconography. Their distinct take on rockabilly and surf along with their midnight movie imagery reminded us all just how exciting, dangerous, vital and sexy rock and roll should be and has spawned entire subcultures. Lux was a fearless frontman who transformed every stage he stepped on into a place of passion, abandon, and true freedom. He is a rare icon who will be missed dearly.
The family requests that you respect their privacy during this difficult time.
I was listening to The Cramps yesterday.
played them on my show yesterday and didn't even know...
hope the gigs continue to be good wherever you are Lux!!!
Thanks for the legacy!
really really sad news i love the cramps and iv always thought that he was a really underrated songwriter,shocking news.
Ron asheton,john martyn and now lux interior : (
i read this first on the vice site actually, and if you go there you can d/l The Purple Knif Show which is a radio show Lux did with all records The Cramps really loved and so and so forth, its pretty damn awesome.
i'm playing "songs the lord taught us" in tribute. i'll refrain from dancing around the room as i normally would as a mark of respect. enjoy the big b-movie in the sky, lux!
and yet people like phil collins live, so unjust.
RIP man, you fucking showed people how it was done...
