A Cleveland punk rock icon, John Morton of Electric Eels and X_X and The Styrenes fame recently became homeless after he left behind his New York home in the attempt to move to Canada. When authorities wouldn't allow him to cross the border, he got stuck in Niagara Falls and set up a gofundme site to receive financial help. He’s raised a few thousand dollars and somehow managed to make sure that the band's current tour took place as scheduled. Gotta admire his perseverance. The band, which formed in Cleveland in 1978, is touring in support of its new album, Albert Ayler’s Ghosts Live at the Yellow Ghetto. (Niesel)
