Erick Lee Purkhiser, better known as Lux Interior (he took his artist name from
a car advertisement), the psycho-billy frontman of clash and crash punks THE CRAMPS
was born on 21 October 1946 in Akron, Ohio. Happy 75 to one of the most charismatic
live performers in rock history.

He met his sexy muse, guitar soulmate, and future wife Poison Ivy (born Kristy Marlana Wallace) in 1972 and they started their garage trash combo The Cramps in 1976. The band released 8 studio albums between 1980 and 2003. The end came when Interior passed away in 2009 due to an aortic dissection. He was only 62.

Happy B. wherever you are…

Their sonic Halloween pumpkin is
unquestionably 1979 zombie cracker
