Last month, Sky Saxon of The Seeds passed away. The Seeds were a big part of the 1960's L.A. garage rock scene, and were mostly known for "Pushin' Too Hard" and "Can't Seem To Make You Mine," both of which are on the Nuggets box set . Great songs. I think songs like those, which were undeniably cool, and probably not too difficult to play, inspired so many people to pick up instruments, start to sing, and/or start a band. Recently at SIRIUS XM, I caught some of The Bangles' performance for Artist Confidential, and at one point, they broke into "Pushin' Too Hard," it's just one of those garage rock classics. You should check it out if you haven't heard it.
