Saxon is mainly known as leader and singer of garage rock band The Seeds. He began his career as a doo-wop influenced singer under the name Little Ritchie Marsh in the early 1960s. After changing his name to Sky Saxon, he started Sky Saxon & The Soul Rockers (1962) and Sky Saxon & The Electra-Fires (1964) before finally starting The Seeds in 1965. After the band's third and last album in 1969, he joined the Source Family commune with whom he recorded several albums as the Ya Ho Wha 13 in the 1973-1974 period.
