Alex Chilton Is Dead; Long Live Alex Chilton
I'm in shock. Alex Chilton is one of my top two musical heroes of all time (the other is Scott Miller). He has died of unspecified causes in New Orleans.
I promise to post a full tribute to him shortly, but right now, I'm still in shock. More info can be read here.
This is the worst musical news I've had in a long time. I feel I've been punched in the stomach.
