A brilliant and influential songwriter, vocalist and guitarist, the charismatic Alex Chilton was more than a rock star; he was a true cult icon. Award winning music writer Holly George-Warren's book is the first biography of this enigmatic artist, who died in 2010. Covering Chilton's life from his early work with the chart-topping Box Tops and the seminal power-pop band Big Star to his experiments with punk and roots music and his sprawling solo career, this is the story of a musical icon and a richly detailed chronicle of pop music's evolution.
HOLLY GEORGE-WARREN is a two-time Grammy nominee and author of many books, including the "New York Times "bestseller "The Road to Woodstock "(with Michael Lang). She lives in upstate New York.
