RIP Mike Carroll

Sad to hear of the passing of Poison 13/Lord High Fixers frontman Mike Carroll.

Greg Shaw (RIP) turned me on to Poison 13 well over 30 years ago and I immediately dug their mix of punk, blues and garage that I have listened to continuously ever since.

Later, while touring with the Tommyknockers, Laura Bennett would regale me with stories of the combined exploits of the Screamin' Sirens and Poison 13 and their off shoots.

I never knew Mike but have long been a fan. His legacy will remain.
