RIP Alex Chilton

December 28, 1950 – March 17, 2010

Alex Chilton was a singer/songwriter/guitarist and the founder of Big Star, a little known indie band in the 1970s that influenced much more popular bands such as The Replacements, R.E.M., and Wilco.

My friend Angie C, DJ for Houndstooth radio, posted this tribute made my a Tenn. Congressman.

NPR Music also has a nice write-up.
