Cincinnati last weekend. He's a close friend of one of the local music
editors, so I got to hang out with him a couple of nights. Wow, what a
genuinely sweet guy. I asked him about handling the gap between Big
Star's commercial and critical appeal. He's as far from bitter as you
can get -- said Big Star opened a lot of doors for him and continues to
do so, and he's had a great life. Handsome fellow, too...the ladies were
Someone asked him about the Rock City record. Said it was so long ago
that he didn't remember some of the songs and had to be assured he
actually played on them. ;-> Seemed to think it was a fun record,

- You could say that Rock City is in Big Star mode but the fact is that RC
proceeded Big Star. Even though Bell and Stephens were in the band and
Chilton guested on some of the recordings, the main singer/songwriter was
Thomas Eubanks (who gets a writing credit on BS's #1 Record). On the RC
album, you get to hear some of Bell's songs that would also make their way
to #1 Record also.
