Big Star is a great band. I have posted their songs before on here.
I watched the documentary about them over the summer, Nothing Can Hurt Me. It is a great story of this early 70s band from Memphis that never made it as big as they deserved. They had a lot of luck. They had good luck– a great studio and great engineers in their hometown and a lot of talent concentrated in their town. Critics loved them. They also had a lot of bad luck– broken deals, bad timing, and palettes of records sitting idle in a locked warehouse. They could have been huge, but they never popped. Instead they just got old. Growing old is a privilege, right? Maybe if you get old someone can rediscover you and appreciate you with new ears in a new age.
