100 Mavericks # 54 Jeffrey Lee Pierce

     And appropriately after last night's activities, onward with this series to Jeffrey Lee. A troubled soul to say the least and perhaps not one to invite home to meet your mother but certainly a considerable talent. Gun Club were true trailblazers and never got the attention and success they deserved but that was largely because of Jeffrey's uncompromising and self-destructive personality. Nevertheless, it's hard to imagine The Pixies for one existing without them. He also clearly lived the life his pained dark, poetic and often quite inspired songs speak of.
