Age: 63
Cause: Unknown

Sky Saxon, lead singer and bassist of '60s garage rockers the Seeds, died June 25th in an Austin, Texas hospital. He had been in the ICU for a couple of days suffering from an undisclosed illness. Doctors suspected an internal organ infection, until his wife, Sabrina, announced his passing via Facebook. Influenced heavily by the Rolling Stones, Saxon (born Richard Marsh) founded the Seeds in 1965 in California. The next year, the psychedelic rockers released two albums, 'The Seeds' and 'A Web of Sound,' and had hits with 'Can't Seem to Make You Mine' and 'Pushin' Too Hard,' their most successful song. In 1967, the band released two more albums: 'Future,' a psychedelic rock album, and 'A Full Spoon of Seedy Blues,' .
