I got ninety six tears in my ninety six eyes.

Lux Interior (aka Erick Purkhiser) died on February 4th 2009 from a pre-existing heart condition

He is remembered by his wife Poison Ivy (Kristy Wallace).

Their band The Cramps defined the genre of pyschobilly and their iconic image of campy, horrific, sci-fi, fetishistic, witchy, dirty American rock will never be forgotten.
