Big Stars...but years later

(Rock) Permanent link

Big Star, like many cult bands, only emerged from obscurity to be heralded as power pop innovators years after they had broken up. On the eve of a new documentary that chronicles their short but influential career, find out what the hype is all about by checking out their beautiful mixture of soul, pop, and rock.

Funny... I hadn't thought of Big Star in a long long time, then just yesterday I read about the screening of "Nothing Can Hurt Me" in LA, which included a short music set afterword that featured Jody Stephens (founding and lone surviving member and drummer) and Jon Auer (The Posies & reconstituted Big Star). Thanks, Ryan, for adding it here - definitely worth checking out!
