    The great Alex Chilton passed away ten years ago yesterday. He was an epic songwriter, guitarist, and record producer, best known as the lead singer of the Box Tops and Big Star.

    For Jud in Minneapolis. Writes Peter Walker in The Guardian, "Why didn't Big Star sell more records? There were misfortunes with labels – they couldn't get #1 Record distributed widely, and there were further problems with the second album. They were also, by all accounts, a fairly chaotic and destructive bunch, particularly the hard-living Chilton. By the time the follow-up to #1 Record, Radio City, was completed, Chilton's songwriting partner and co-singer, Chris Bell, had quit the group, as had bassist Andy Hummel. I suppose that's the lesson – talent alone isn't enough."
