Erick Lee Purkhiser, better known as Lux Interior, along with wife
Kristy Wallace (aka Poison Ivy) would form garage rockabilly heroes The Cramps in 1973 and
soon become part of the flourishing New York punk scene of the time. Sadly the music would end
in February of 2009 when Lux would unexpectedly die due to heart irregularities.
He was born on this day in 1946.
