Five years? Is it really five years you left us, Lux? You've had such a power to inspire us, so I thought they were at most two years. Sometimes I see your tapes, and I don't realize you're not here ... just at the end of the cassette, and not each time! This have to mean that you two have taught me "more" than just the amazing way to make NEW the songs that heroes who preceded you wrote, the songs that God gave them. This is for certain what you did.

Ivy Rorschach), in Sacramento in 1972, when he and a friend picked her
up when she was hitchhiking. The couple later founded The Cramps. ]
