About: Chris Bell is truly one of the unsung heroes of American pop music. During his short and troubled lifetime, his work with the band Big Star was celebrated only by a tiny cult, and his only solo single received little notice. However, decades later, Bell’s work with Big Star was belatedly acknowledged as some of the best and most influential pop music of the ‘70s. In addition, the posthumous release of Bell’s pre- and post-Big Star recordings demonstrated his strength as a instrumentalist and songwriter, and testified to his important role in Big Star, long regarded as Alex Chilton’s project.
