    Second.

    I saw him in concert once. He carried a little metal cigar tube filled with gunpowder that he used in his act. Before the show he filled a little pot with some. The pot was wired to a battery and a foot pedal. At the end of "Hot Time in the Old Town Tonight" he would stomp the pedal and a flash would go off. He wouldn't fly on airplanes because of his gunpowder tube.

    The 13th Floor Elevators formed in 1965 in Austin and released four albums and seven singles before breaking up in 1969 after Roger "Roky" Erickson was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. (Too much LSD, I'd say.) Their first single, You're Gonna Miss Me, reached #55 on the Hot 100 in October 1966. In the early 1980s, Erickson released two albums with his new group The Aliens. He also recorded solo.
