RIP Alex Chilton

SO 59 year old Singer of the Band Big Star died this week.
I never really listened to big star but knew how influential his band was. The Pixies, Nirvana and the Replacements all claimed them to be a big influence on their music
But I grew up loving this song

And always wondered who the heck "Alex Chilton" was, and I guess I was late listening to his band.
And I guess now will never see him live. Another reason to make sure I see more bands when I have the chance.
Anyway heres Big Star live

And Elliot Smith singing the same song !
