|10.16.06||Music Monday|| Doc about Roky Erickson: genius musician who's crazy. I can't helpt but compare it to The Devil and Daniel Johnston, both being "genius" and both being crazy and also both living in Austin for a time. I'd say that Roky's current state is a little more hopeful than Daniel's, but both doc still end up being pretty sad as they explore these guys' lives.|
In the case of Erickson, I think it's safe to say that his parents, which are both featured in the film, deal heavily with his mental state. It's kind of funny though, the film portrays Roky as not going insane until after he was locked up in the looney bin for some BS marijuana conviction... it's only after he got out that he started getting paranoid and loopy. Who knows... what I do know is that I want to check out some of his music now... what played in the film was all really good.
