    Default It's raining garage rock legends

    Whole lotta dyin' going on today.

    After falling ill from an undiagnosed condition last week, the man born Richard Marsh performed a set at the Austin club Antone's on Saturday night but then was rushed to St. David's Hospital early Monday morning, according to a press release. Doctors believe an infection of the internal organs may be to blame. It is unclear what Saxon's age was.

    Saxon's wife Sabrina posted the news of the death on Facebook, according to Austin360: "Sky has passed over and YaHoWha is waiting for him at the gate. He will soon be home with his Father. I'm so sorry I couldn't keep him here with us. More later. I'm sorry."

    In the mid-60s, the Seeds were responsible for scrappy, gnarled proto-punk anthems like "Pushin' Too Hard" and "Can't Seem to Make You Mine". The former song appeared on the legendary original 1972 Nuggets compilation.

    Thanks for posting this SD. It's too bad his death will be overshadowed today. His vocal stylings had so much attitude and really paved the way for many punk rockers. RIP.

    Saw this as I was looking through the MySpace status of friends, among the many comments about Michael. Whole lotta dyin' going on today, indeed.

    I saw Sky at the HOB show with the Adolescents and the Damned recently... now he's dead.
