The letter

This is, I believe, the second year that indie musicians got together for a Big Star tribute for the late Alex Chilton:

On May 28th, some of indie and power pop’s elite gathered together to perform Big Star’s “Third” in its entirety, plus a whole lot more. Jody Stephens, Jon Auer, Ken Stringfellow, Mitch Easter, Robyn Hitchcock, Brett Harris, Norman Blake, Chris Stamey, Django Haskins, Mike Mills and Ira Kaplan knocked out over two hours of music. Some great stuff and I have it all for a possible post if there is enough interest.

Oh, and Ray Davies:

One thought on “The letter

  1. I love that Robyn Hitchcock, in all his platinum-haired weirdness, is playing a hairdryer, presumably to replicate the airplane noises from the original song.
