I never understood why Big Star never got huge. If you haven't heard them, I highly suggest checking out their catalog. I mean they were such a major influence on music. Their catchy pop songs changed the face of indie/alternative music. I was very excited to hear about them playing for the first time in years at sxsw. I guess it just wasn't meant to be because today I hear that Alex Chilton has died of a heart attack. Now he really will be a legend.
I wish Paul Westerberg would write a song about me.
