Last week Shyboy Tim and I were saddened to hear about the death of Alex Chilton, and we spent the morning show playing all the Big Star we could. Both hours began with The Replacements singing their tribute to the man, "Alex Chilton". Since the news hit the press I have been anxious to hear what Paul Westerberg might have to say about last week's sad news, and now I found it. Have a look for yourself.
See Paul Westerberg's New York Times piece here.
And here. I haven't spent that much time with Big Star's third album, but after seeing that Paul's favorite song comes from that one, it is going into rotation a.s.a.p.
