Alex Chilton

I met Alex Chilton last Saturday night for the first and sadly last time. He was very soft-spoken and sweet and talked mostly about an obscure form of astrology in which birthdays are matched to particular playing cards. Upon telling him my birthday, he informed me, without hesitation, that I was a King of Diamonds. I wasn't sure what that meant, but I liked the sound of it. Rest in peace.

  1. Wow! Odd how life has a way of giving us moments like that.
    When I heard the news of his death I didn't think I knew who he was. But as I listened to the story on NPR I realized that I knew exactly who he was, but his name had escaped me. I feel a strange sense of guilt about that.
