There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.

One of the Post‘s best blogs reminds us that Farrah Fawcett wasn’t the only person whose demise was blocked out by Michael Jackson‘s—-Sky Saxon, singer of the Seeds, died last Thursday as well. I’ll say—-the publicist who emailed me on June 15 about a garage-rock tour featuring Love, the Electric Prunes, and Saxon, hasn’t uttered a peep about Saxon’s death. (Though considering that Arthur Lee, Love’s singer, died three years ago, that may not impact plans much.)

Here’s Saxon and the Seeds doing their best-known song, “Pushin’ Too Hard.” He’s on bass and singing.

And here’s how things ended up.
