In the wake of his passing, the irreverent and spirited Mojo Nixon continues to make waves in the world of rock 'n roll. Ohio prepares to celebrate his life and legacy with a proclamation at the State House on June 11, officially declaring it Mojo Nixon Day. A subsequent event at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland on June 12 will unveil artifacts from his colorful career, marking his enduring impact on music and culture. Scott Ambrose Reilly, Nixon's longtime manager reflects:

Mojo would’ve loved the idea he was one of the few things Democrats and Republicans could agree on. He believed in the American Dream...but, he knew it took true rock ‘n roll rebellion to prevent the small-minded and mean-spirited from holding people back.
