Here's a thought by which you might find solace, DJ Murph: Chilton is being eulogied for what he contributed creatively. No one is looking at his family and wondering what they get in the will. No drama queens are wrestling over his relics. No media conglomerate is re-issuing posthumous images of h...

I don't know much about Chilton. But maybe he wouldn't have wanted every Coors Light sippin' Avatar watchin' drone to be upset with his death. Hmm, so let me follow this logic through... 1) I wouldn't be this broken up if, say, Bruce Springsteen were to pass unexpectedly (no disrespect to Bruce). 2...

Alright, I soften my "nobody cares" stance a little; I was in soul torment, and angry as hell. What you saw was pure blood-on-the-paper type writing, uncensored and unfiltered. Some people (the important ones) do care, I will concede.

The whole situation still sucks horribly.

I would just like to thank everyone here who always talked about his music and turned me on to him (Murph and the gang here). I had no idea who he was until I started visiting this website. I only knew the song "Alex Chilton" and had no idea he was real or just a character in a Westerberg song. Onc...

This is the worst musical news I've received in a long time. I feel I've been punched in the stomach. Not fair. I'm sadder than I can let on at work.

For me, the real story is the growing list of who wants to be the Simon replacement judge. Howard Stern, and now Steve Lillywhitehave made their intentions clear. I think Howard is just trying to mess with Sirius in a contract-renewal year.

This lawsuit is genius, if you think about it: -- Pink Floyd (as does EMI) makes more from the sale of an "album" than it does from the sale of a single track. -- Pink Floyd gets the P.R. benefit of claiming to do it to preserve their "artistic integrity", which while it might be part of the story, ...
