Rock City




Published September 04, 2003.Rock CityS/T (Lucky Seven)Before Alex Chilton joined forces with Chris Bell for Big Star’s #1 Record, Bell and Big Star bandmate Jody Stephens were in Rock City. This CD displays the framework that Bell would bring to Big Star’s powerhouse sound. With the still ongoing debate over who was the genius songwriter, Rock City helps the listener to understand Bell’s role in what many people consider to be Chilton’s band. Without a doubt an important document in the life of what became one of rock’s most influential bands. —Trevor MacLaren
