This one hit me hard. I love Alex's music so much and have learned a great deal about songwriting from it. It's baffling to me that he isn't a household name and, in a just world, would be held in the same esteem as someone like John Lennon. He and Big Star were supposed to be playing SXSW tonight, but now the gig has turned into a tribute show. I wish I could be there to pay tribute to a hero.

Thanks for the clips, Dan. He wasn't too famous, and I thank-you for posting the vids since I'm too lazy to go searching for them. Looks like it's time to buy a new album.[img=/images/smiley/msn/shades_smile.gif][/img]
