Synopsis

You're Gonna Miss Me
The founding father of psychedelic music is profiled in director Keven McAlester's intimate look at the life and career of legendary 13th Floor Elevators frontman Roger Kynard "Roky" Erickson. His voice was powerful enough to start a musical revolution, but the noise in his head would ultimately prove too overwhelming to ignore. A rock & roll icon whose epic heroin and LSD binges preceded a devastating battle with schizophrenia, Erickson gradually withdrew from the music scene while growing increasingly obsessed with religion. Now, as the 53-year-old Erickson sits in his apartment just outside of Austin, TX, listening to multiple television, radios, scanners, and electric keyboards, fans can finally find out just what ever happend to the man who became one of rock & roll's greatest mysteries. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
