Creedence Bassist Remembers Roky

Stu Cook, bassist for Creedence Clearwater Revival, commented recently in an interview on one of the highlights of his long career - producing Roky Erickson.
What are some of your more memorable experiences outside of CCR?

I produced some songs for Roky Erikson that I think are good.

Was Roky Erickson difficult to work with?

He was hard to get into the studio, but that wasn’t his fault. It was the people at the Texas state mental hospital in Austin. At first they wouldn’t let him leave.
Wow, that’s so rock n roll.

Thanks, yes, I think so too.
