Roky Erickson movie trailer

This looks good. The bumph reads:
This is the story of Roky Erickson: manic frontman for the legendary band The 13th Floor Elevators, creators of psychedelic music and muse to Janis Joplin. YOU’RE GONNA MISS ME is a disturbingly intimate portrait of an imploding family and the struggle between modernized medicine and religion.

Known for his colossal heroin & LSD binges, struggles with "schizophrenia", and an unthinkable term at Rusk Hospital for the Criminally Insane, Roky went missing from the world.

YOU’RE GONNA MISS ME reveals the shocking & triumphant truth behind one of Rock’s great mysteries.
