I can’t tell you how sad this makes me, but news today reached my ears that Alex Chilton, singer from personal favourites Big Star, passed away today at age 59 from a suspected heart attack.
To be honest, it’s been a really shitty last 4 months. First Chris “Spacewolf” Feinstein passed away. Scarcely a week later, Vic Chestnutt leaves us, highlighting issues in the US health care system. Then Mark Linkous tragically takes his own life.
And it’s just not f*cking fair.
It’s just not fair.
