AV: There is also a story about Roky being committed to the Austin State Hospital, but then he was broken out by Tommy and some other people. Do you know anything abut this?DG: You're asking me to presume a lot. To tell you the honest to goodness truth, I'm not going to discuss it. If you want to know, you're going to have to direct it to those people.CH: Everybody has a different theory of what happened to Roky and his subsequent mental condition, but let me say what I believe. Roky was extremely sensible, intelligent, and level-headed. I would best describe his personality as ebullient. One day Tommy and Roky had dropped some LSD and it was getting late. We were near his mother's house and Roky asked if we could drop him off. Tommy and I suggested he crash at our place but Roky said, "No, it's my mom's place and it will be cool."I don't know what happened after we dropped Roky off, but he either freaked out or his mother was appalled at the state he was in. Consequently, his mother had him committed to the Austin State Hospital where I believe he underwent shock treatment. We began to hear, through our friends and inside sources, that Roky was in terrible condition. Some of the guys decided to break Roky out during his recreation period.One of the doors was broken and Tommy even left money to have it fixed. The Roky we now saw before us was different. Whether it was the shock treatment by itself, or in conjunction with the fragile condition of Roky's mind from drug usage, I don't know if anyone can really say. He was never the same again. Roky's mother, who is very religious, must have decided it was best to have him sent away. (This decision may have, in part, been made since Roky had also recently been busted when the Elevators had played at Sam Houston State University.) Roky was then sent to northeast Texas to Rusk State Mental Hospital.
