On Vox: Keep the rewards, I'd just as soon stay sick

Sad to wake up this morning and find that Lux Interior has died. He was a pioneer, for sure.

The Cramps were one of the first punk bands that had me on the hook. I loved their imagery and their psychobilly vibe. Lux was a mad man on stage, and Poison Ivy was the subject of many a dirty fantasy.

I had the pleasure of seeing the the Cramps live a few times, including a couple years ago at the Filmore on Halloween, where I stood right against the stage while Lux screamed in my face while clenching a dented microphone in his 60 year old mandibles. It don't get no better than that, kids.
