LA Garage Rock Icon Sky Sunlight Saxon Hospitalized in Texas
The Seeds "Can't Seem to Make You Mine"
Last Monday Sky Sunlight Saxon, founder of the legendary LA garage rock band The Seeds, was hospitalized in Austin, Texas. As of Wednesday afternoon, he remains in critical condition. According to a press release, Saxon's illness is undiagnosed.
"Sky has improved a little today ... I say that but I also want to stress that he is seriously ill and is heavily sedated. He is not responsive when being talked to so I'm not sure if he hears or not. He is still in danger. I am playing his music for him."
Sabrina goes on to further detail his condition, noting that he will begin temporary dialysis, and encourages people to show their support by sending cards and balloons to his hospital room. The address and other information can also be found on The Seeds' blog.
Sky Saxon latest album, Back to the Garden, came out last year. He continues to play live frequently and has an East Coast tour scheduled for later this summer. To view more video clips of his work, follow the jump.
