Song of the Week 3/19/10

Big Star - "Thank You Friends"

I was going to write a lengthy post about the passing of Big Star's Alex Chilton. But what I said in the podcast seemed to sum it all up. "Thank You Friends" is the song I went back to a few times in the past 5 days.

I also thought Paul Westerberg (in the New York Times) and Tommy Stinson (in Philadelphia Weekly) had some great things to say about their late friend and inspiration.

Goodbye Alex. Thank you for the many songs that have meant so much to me over the past 20 years.
