YouTube du Jour: Alex Chilton

[youtube][/youtube] At this year’s Best of the Beat (January 28 at Generations Hall), we’ll have a tribute to the late Alex Chilton, who passed away last March. The Iguanas’ rhythm section – Rene Coman and Doug Garrison – played with Chilton, and they’ll be joined by Alex McMurray, Dave Pirner, Theresa Andersson, Susan Cowsill, Davis Rogan and the Lost Bayou Ramblers’ Louis Michot to remember his music with the Box Tops, Big Star, and on his own. Here’s a feature on Chilton from 1985 when he appeared on MTV’s The Cutting Edge, hosted by the Fleshtones’ Peter Zaremba.
