I know I’m a little late on this one, but I have been in Austin all week. There were many sets, tributes and eulogies dedicated to Alex Chilton of Big Star this past few days at SXSW. The man had a major influence on many of my favorite artists. I am sad to say I am not very familiar with his work, but I plan on educating myself soon.
Alex Chilton died of a heart attack on March 17th in New Orleans.
