Sounds like a show to look forward to. I still play the hell out of "Radio City".
You're right in line with 99% of the population....I'm just a few years younger, and i only found 'em about 5 years back, tho i swear i remember an article on them in the first RollingStone mag i ever bought, around 92 or so.
The new box set is really great, and i'm really looking forward to ordering Bell's solo album, which has just been reissued. The live disc showcases a band that was pretty tight, despite having just lost one of it's leaders. Alex's guitar is really great on that disc....
And yeah, Jody rules. Although now, after listening to the live disc, i have to give just as much credit to Andy. A true 4 headed monster, that band.
Big Star is probably the best band ever. Moderators, please lock this thread now.
Oh, and it sucks i missed this show....I saw Wilco and Spoon on that stage, loved those shows...Tastefest rules.
ok, don't lock the thread yet. Alex Chilton, despite his best efforts to hide it, is an extremely gifted guitarist. Supposedly, he could pretty much do anything with the instrument by the time he was in his early twenties. ok, carry on with thread lock....
One of the greatest bands ever. Must have been very cool to hear this material live, for sure!
Yeah, it's been a couple weeks now, but I'm still feeling very fortunate to have seen it.
The picture I posted was from a Box Tops show from four years ago. Even though it wasn't Big Star, I just got a heck of a thrill being second row center watching the enigmatic, great Alex Chilton. Before the show, I was a little bummed that I was gonna see Alex in the Box Tops format, but it was a great show and I was totally glad I went.
Alex is a legend and Big Star ranks in the tops of the history of rock music. Probably the greatest band no one's ever heard of. I'd love to see Big Star, just once in my life. Too bad there's no chance of ever seeing the original lineup.
September Gurls is probably the perfect power pop song
can I has embed code?
+1 on Chilton being an excellent guitarist (as was Chris Bell). The guitar playing on Radio City is sick!
All three albums are magnificient
Chris Bell was a great guitar player as well
Huge fan for a long, long time.
That was cool. Thanks for the link!
If history has taught us anything it's that Taylor Hanson has a few drugged-out pop/rock masterpieces in him.
One of my favorite bands. Alex is one of the most underrated guitar players of all time.
