9780143127055: Man Called Destruction, A : The Life and Music of Alex Chilton, From Box Tops to Big Star to Backdoor Man

A brilliant and influential songwriter, vocalist and guitarist, the charismatic Alex Chilton was more than a rock star; he was a true cult icon. Award winning music writer Holly George-Warren's book is the first biography of this enigmatic artist, who died in 2010. Covering Chilton's life from his early work with the chart-topping Box Tops and the seminal power-pop band Big Star to his experiments with punk and roots music and his sprawling solo career, this is the story of a musical icon and a richly detailed chronicle of pop music's evolution.
