It has been too long. I know I watched the Big Star documentary, Big Black Car. But did I watch it while Miles was alive? I don’t remember. I could look it up and discern it by finding a journal entry about it and checking the date.
I know Miles would have liked it. It is a great story but a sad story. They never reached the audiences they deserved until well after they had broken up. We can enjoy them now, their crisp power pop sound. We can listen and wonder what might have been if a few things were different in the timeline.
