Fri, 02 Sep 2005 :: Alex Chilton still missing
Tribune Newspapers: Los Angeles Times Published September 2, 2005 Alex Chilton, 54, the rock singer and guitarist, was listed Thursday on the missing-persons page of the Times-Picayune's Web site. He had stayed in New Orleans during the storm, said a spokeswoman for his record label, Rykodisc, and has not been heard from since. If he was from Venus, would he feed us with a spoon? If he was from Mars, wouldn't that be cool? Standing right on campus, would he stamp us in a file? Hangin' down in Memphis all the while. Children by the million sing for Alex Chilton when he comes 'round They sing "I'm in love. What's that song? I'm in love with that song." Cerebral rape and pillage in a village of his choice. Invisible man who can sing in a visible voice. Feeling like a hundred bucks, exchanging good lucks face to face. Checkin' his stash by the trash at St. Mark's place. I never travel far, without a little Big Star Runnin' 'round the house, Mickey Mouse and the Tarot cards. Falling asleep with a flop pop video on. If he was from Venus, would he meet us on the moon? If he died in Memphis, then that'd be cool.
