Chris Bell’s birthday
Originally shared by Rebecca C
Chris Bell is one of our birthday artists today. A talented singer/songwriter who was signed with Stax Records, which seemed to do little to promote Chris’s band Big Star. Chris went on to a solo career but died at age 27 in a car accident. There is a movie which tells the story of Big Star and I’d like to find it. Many alternative artists have credited the power pop band Big Star as the band which inspired them, including R.E.M.
