Default BIG STAR

Years ago, I had heard that Big Star was an influence for Billy, but never gave it much thought. I've been getting into them recently. Fuck, this shit is good.

Those are my two favorite songs by them. I got into them a few years ago unfortunately after Alex Chilton died. A truly great and truly underrated band. I haven't heard their third album, but the first two are both classic.

trivia: In Grand Theft Auto IV, your character can date a woman named Alex Chilton.

I remember learning about Modest Mouse, Big Star, and Guided By Voices from the same magazine. I can't remember the title but it had Fred Durst on the cover.

the first time I ever heard of modest mouse was when whatever it's called, the sell-outish record came out and that song was on the radio all the time. I was like 14, I'm a bit younger than some of you
