Children by the Million Sing for Alex Chilton When He Comes Round
Meanwhile, back in Memphis.... Besides Prince Mongo selling his house (don't worry, he'll find another one in a neighborhood with more appropriate neighbors to irritate by his very presence), the local PBS station made a documentary about the Memphis garage sound of the 1960s, a sound that gave the world the Boxtops ("The Letter"), fronted by Alex Chilton, and The Gentrys ("Keep on Dancing"). The Commercial Appeal's John Beifuss has the story here.
The entry title is from the song by The Replacements, of course. (Bob was such a loser.)
