...at a local WAL-MART. They were doing a signing for their new album, which they made you buy. But, I was also able to get my "In Color" gatefold signed. I was wearing my Big Star shirt, and they were making comments about it that I couldn't tell if they were supposed to be joking or insulting. Rick Nielsen said, "You are more clever than Alex Chilton", and I said I took that as a compliment, then one of 'em said "You ARE Alex Chilton! Thanks for lettin' us play that one song you wrote!", and I was like "Yeah, no problem, I just wish you wouldn'a changed that line about smokin' weed though." Overall a pretty surreal experience. Their new album ain't half bad either.
