Alex Chilton: Alex's Wild Years

Martin Aston, Melody Maker, 2 November 1985

If anybody can really claim to be a living legend, ALEX CHILTON is the guy. From the Box Tops to Big Star to the booze, Alex went from Memphis to hell and back. He survived though, and has released a new album called Feudalist Tarts. In a deserted McDonalds, he spilled some beans to panting Martin Aston.
