Flashlite #39: In Memory of Lux Interior, John Martyn and Dewey Martin

Lux InteriorToday’s show is dedicated to three rockers that died in the last few days: Lux Interior of The Cramps, Dewey Martin of Buffalo Springfield and John Martyn. John Martyn was a singer songwriter that emerged from the British scene of the late 60s. Good friend of this radio show, Kim Simpson, introduced me to him just mere days before Martyn died, so this posthumous homage to Martyn is also his debut at the Little Lighthouse. Buffalo Springfield on the other hand, is a very well known band that sprung up careers of Neil Young and Stephen Stills. Drummer in that band was Dewey Martin who had a decent voice himself. Dewey had some solo efforts after Buffalo Springfield, but these are difficult to come across. However, the biggest rock’n’roll loss that we commemorate in this show is definitely Lux Interior. Legendary singer of The Cramps died of the heart failure on February 3rd 2009. Although he was born as an Ohio boy name Erick Purkhiser, he died as Lux Interior, who might as well been from outer space…
