i am absolutely shattered tonight to hear about the passing of alex chilton. big star has always been a huge influence on me ever since i heard #1 Record, and it truly has some of the greatest pop songs ever recorded. i was incredibly fortunate to see big star perform back in 2006 and it was a highlight of my life to hear the man play “ballad of el goodo” in person. the world lost a legend today. rest in peace.
years ago, my heart was set to live, oh
and i’ve been trying hard against strong odds
it gets so hard at times like now to hold on
well i’ll fall if i dont fight and at my side is God
come with me if you want to live
