Big Star

Big Star was one of the best bands of the 1970s. Unfortunately, many of us (including me) didn’t know about them because of record label distribution problems. I first became aware of them from an import CD in the 1980s.

Keep An Eye On The Sky is a four CD set from Rhino.

A Man Called Destruction is a fine book about Alex Chilton, the most prominent member of Big Star.

From Stax Records:

Jody Stephens, legendary drummer and CEO of Ardent Studios, spends 30 minutes with host, Tom DeSavia. Jody shares what he’s up to right now and reflects on early days with Memphis’ legendary rock band Big Star. From upcoming new music, to his appreciation of the recent Craft Big Star reissues, Jody’s grace and gratitude solidify his standing as the undisputed nicest guy in rock ‘n’ roll.
