Lux Interior Dead at 60

Front man for The Cramps died yesterday in Glendale.

Lux Interior, the singer, songwriter and founding member of the pioneering New York City horror-punk band the Cramps, died Wednesday. He was 60.

From the LAT:

Interior, whose real name was Erick Lee Purkhiser, died at Glendale Memorial Hospital of a heart condition, according to a statement from his publicist.

The truly punk rock don’t have to go down in a punk rock way. The truly punk rock can blaze a new trail and die without an OD or weird stunt.

Rest in peace, Lux.
