Big Star were a huge influence on me and many of the bands I loved as a teenager.
Alex Chilton died today a the age of 59. He was always very modest about the impact he had on the music scene, but loads of people felt he should have had more recognition.

Farewell Alex.

I only heard today that he had died I wasn't a big fan of Big Star to be honest but certainly I think we need to pay some respect here.

september girls, lovely song. definitely a great unsung band. i don't think a lot of the lo-fi americana style stuff could have happened without him..
