A brace of sad news today with the passing of Charlie Gillet and Alex Chilton.
I always liked Charlie's shows even though if I'm honest he didn't always play stuff I liked but it was always refreshing to hear someone who genuinely loved the music he was playing. I only recently heard Big Star I must admit for years I confused AC with Alex Harvey and only recently via Stuart Maconi had the 2 separated in my mind.
Anyway I really Love Promised Land by Johnny Allen (which for those who don't know CG introduced to us all) it never fails to cheer me up. So over to Johnny with teh travel news!
