what it is: german pneumonia
where he found it: out on the road
Word has it that psychedelic warlord guitarist Tom Carter has been in a German hospital for the past month or so after contracting a heavy duty case of pneumonia. The is no word on when he may emerge, but you can be sure there will be some anxiously waiting medical bill collectors when he does. Benefits have been popping up recently, as has this website, where you can donate in a few different capacities. Tom is the only person I know that can accurately recite 13th Floor Elevator lyrics at great length (I'm pretty sure Roky Erikson doesn't rememeber them). Get well soon.
PS - If you want to hear some of Tom's sounds, here's a link to some heavy collabo stuff he did with NNCK's Pat Murano a month or so ago.
