If he died in Memphis than that's be cool, babe


I read all the eulogies this past week on Alex Chilton. And while Big Star was a little before my time and I wasn't a die-hard fan, it didn't really sink in till I saw Wilco the other night. Their last song of a three hours set was dedicated to Mr. Chilton, a weighty and stirring rendition of 'Thank You Friends'.

I'm sure if you were to go clicking through Ancestry.com, you'd find a link between Jeff Tweedy and Alex Chilton. Kindred spirits dedicated to good old rock and roll.

I'm just sayin'.


Big Star- Thank You Friends
