I read that Lux Interior died yesterday, which made me sad. All the punk rockers are starting to die of predictable and natural causes.
In a strange coincidence, this week is the 50th anniversary of Buddy Holly’s death.
I put a notice on Twitter about Lux and was a bit astonished at the small, but fervent outpour of related comments. There was a lot of hopeful skepticism about it, which got me thinking about how few iconic figures were left in music.
If the dude from Nickelback died, there’s a dozen to fill his place. Lux died, and he left a giant hole that won’t likely be filled.
