Movie Info

Filmmaker Keven McAlester explores the life of legendary vocalist and songwriter Roger Kynard "Roky" Erickson, who, during the '60s, fronted the influential rock 'n' roll band 13th Floor Elevators. Following extensive psychedelic drug use and a stint in a mental hospital, Roky spent the greater part of the last four decades suffering from schizophrenia. McAlester finds Roky living with his brother, who has aided in his recovery and encouraged his return to music.

  • One moment of true grace is exactly what You're Gonna Miss Me gives, but the rest of it is pretty interesting as well.

  • Today Roky is actually on tour again, with a number of 2007 musical festival appearances including Coachella -- a development at least worthy of an afterword.

    Watching this documentary made me want to go out & find some Roky Erickson CDs

    A fascinating doc about Roky Erickson, the singer for '13th floor elevators'. Very similar to the doc 'Devil in Daniel Johnston' and just as good.

    Was it the drug usage that transformed him from a rock pioneer into an incoherent burnout, or was it the preexisting schizophrenia? Was it the treatments that he received in the hospitals, or was it simply the fact that he was locked up in these hospitals? These questions really can't be answered, and the documentary does not attempt to do so. What it does do is present the man's life story from the beginning of his musical career up until the present leaving it up to the viewer to come to his or her own conclusions about this tragic turn of events.
