Dr. John Breeding, Ph.D. gives a tribute to Sumner Erickson.
Sumner Erickson, brother of legendary psychedelic rock pioneer Roky Erickson.
Sumner recently performed at the 5th Annual Roky Erickson Psychedelic Ice Cream Social.
The Ice Cream Social is co-sponsored this year by the Coalition for the Abolition of Electroshock in Texas (CAEST). Many artists have been hurt over the years by the labels and biological treatments of the mental health system. Roky Erickson, Townes Van Zandt and Jim Franklin are Austin music legends who suffered from psychiatric electroshock, also known as electroconvulsive therapy, or ECT. Families Rock Productions is also a co-sponsor.
