As I'm sure all of you know, Alex Chilton died of a heart attack on Wednesday. Of course you know that, because how can you not know that? How can you not know that a musician of his immense popularity had died? I mean it's probably all over the cable news networks with cameras covering candlelight vigils and helicopters following ambulances and whatnot. Because he was pretty much the singer laureate of America, am I right?
As a matter of fact, now that I think about it, I'm probably interrupting your grieving process. Sorry! Please forgive my rudeness. I just wanted to share this nice, heartfelt eulogy that Tennessee's Rep. Steve Cohen gave Alex Chilton on the House floor yesterday…
I know. I know. It gets so hard at times like now to hold on.
