10/31/2006


AUSTIN, TEXAS- Just in time for Halloween, Legendary Rock n Roll pioneer and Austin Native Roky Erickson stopped by the Gibson Guitar Showroom recently to sign a 10-foot tall Gibson Guitar sculpture for the Austin GuitarTown project.

The bat themed guitar, Keep Austin Batty, was created by visual artists: Ann Pinion, Caro Dubois and Kathie Franklin. Roky is best known as a singer, songwriter, and guitar player for the legendary band, The 13th Floor Elevators, the first rock and roll band to describe their music as "psychedelic”.
