Remembering Alex Chilton

I remember, around this time last year, when Sound Opinions did their SXSW roundup. They mentioned the recent passing of Alex Chilton, and the tribute that many artists did at the festival in place of the Big Star performance that was supposed to happen. Despite being a Big Star fan, I had never really delved into Chilton's solo work. I've since righted that wrong, picking up a copy of Like Flies On Sherbert and playing it on repeat for a good two months after... for anyone else who's been missing out on Alex Chilton, Stereogum has a recent post remembering Chilton, and featuring several "hip" artists' Chilton favorites.

If that doesn't do it for you, consider the fact that The Replacements wrote a song about him... I mean, c'mon!
