Alex Chilton, best known as the singer and guitarist of Big Star has died at the age of 59. Big Star's Thirteen has been at the #1 spot of my last.fm charts for the past few years. You can read all about Alex Chilton, Big Star and the Box Tops and all his lovely songs in other places. I'll just leave you with Thirteen.
Won't you let me walk you home from school
Won't you let me meet you at the pool
Maybe Friday I can
Get tickets for the dance
And I'll take you
Won't you tell your dad, "Get off my back"
Tell him what we said 'bout 'Paint It Black'
Rock 'n Roll is here to stay
Come inside where it's okay
And I'll shake you.
Won't you tell me what you're thinking of
Would you be an outlaw for my love
If it's so, well, let me know
If it's "no", well, I can go
I won't make you
Big Star - Thirteen
