Big shooting star

video


So Alex Chilton is gone. Fortunately, his songs remain.
Yesterday I played his music non-stop.

Princess Nutella, my youngest, almost crying: It's so sad that he has died
Me: But you didn't know him.
Nutella: But it makes me sad to think he has died.
Me: But some people die and are not remembered, and he is gonna be remembered because of his beautiful songs.
Nutella: But I am sad because he won't be making any more!

Yesterday, during their show in Bilbao, the great Yo la Tengo played their homage. Here's the video.

Alex Chilton nos ha dejado. Afortunadamente, nos quedan sus canciones.
Ayer puse su música sin parar.

Princesa Nocilla, la pequeña, casi llorando: Me da mucha pena que se haya muerto.
Yo: Pero si no le conocías...
Nocilla: Pero me da pena pensar que se ha muerto.
Yo: Pero muchos mueren y nadie se acuerda de ellos, al menos a él le recordaremos por sus bonitas canciones.
Nocilla: Pero me da pena que ya no va hacer ninguna más!

Ayer, durante su concierto en Bilbao, Yo La Tengo le hizo su homenaje. Aquí está el video.

Ayer debimos ser muchos los que "pinchamos" sus temas y le recordamos... Supongo que eso le hará feliz allá donde esté. Te envidio por ese conciertito...

Fuisteis a Yo la Tengo y no me avisasteis?

Si yo no fui por no estar solo!

Menos mal que N le alegra el día a cualquiera...
