Normally this blog focuses on politics. But it’s a sad day, and I can’t resist saying a few words about Alex Chilton, who died yesterday in New Orleans.
As a member of Big Star and The Box Tops (not to mention his work as a solo artist and producer) the music he created played a major role in my teenage years and beyond. He was a huge influence on countless great bands. He was years ahead of his time. He was a quirky, underrated, iconoclastic musical genius… and he will be missed.
