Local Favorites Pay Tribute To Alex Chilton

Full disclosure:  when I was asked if I wanted to attend a tribute to the late Alex Chilton at Brighton Music Hall, I had to research him because his name was not familiar. As soon as I saw he was in the Box Tops, who had a huge hit with ‘The Letter’, I realized I knew at least the beginning of his career. I did not know he is considered the inventor of indie and alternative rock.

Holly George-Warren wrote the definitive biography of Chilton, A Man Called Destruction: The Life and Music of Alex Chilton, From Box Tops to Big Star to Backdoor Man, and she opened the evening with some readings and reminiscences of Chilton. She was joined for a brief conversation about Chilton by Jody Stephens, the lone surviving member of Big Star.
