While the world was/is mourning the passings of Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett, we also lost Sky Saxon yesterday morning. Equally a pop music icon of his time, he was the lead singer and founder of The Seeds, a frontrunner of the California garage band sound of the late 1960s.
To the right is the poster that everyone had in their bedroom in the mid to late seventies, or more accurately, the poster. While it sold almost twelve million copies, I didn’t have it myself but I did have a miniature version of it as well as pics from magazines up on my door. She was a sex symbol to probably every teenage boy in America in the seventies, and now, Farrah Fawcett has passed away.
Besides being every boy’s wet dream, she was also the wife of the guy we all wanted to be – Lee Majors, “The Six Million Dollar Man.” While only being in one season, she was the undisputed star of “Charlie’s Angels.” She also appeared in dozens of other television programs in the decade including her husband’s and anything from “Marcus Welby MD” to “Harry O” to “The Partridge Family.”
In the eighties she became romantically involved with Ryan O’Neal in a relationship that lasted the rest of her life. She moved on to breathtaking dramatic performances in Extremities and The Burning Bed that resulted in several awards and nominations. Throughout her long career she has remained a pop icon and always in our minds.
Farrah passed from complications of cancer. She was 62, and she will be missed.
