Chilton.jpgYou may have heard that Alex Chilton has passed away. Under appreciated by the general public but hugely influential on just about everything and anything that came after him that has to do with anything good in American Music, he was certainly one of Tavern Tan's musical heroes. Here are two of the best of the many tributes that made the rounds in the last few days, these two by incredible musicians and heroes, who knew Chilton personally. This one hurts:

Paul Westerberg  in the NY Times:
