Description by

Although Big Star were together for less than four years in the mid-1970s and had little commercial success, their influence reaches far and wide. In an era of glam and prog rock, they wrote addictive, radio-friendly pop tunes. Their records literally changed people's lives - including those of artists as diverse as the Bangles, the Replacements, Wilco, the Dream Syndicate, the Shins, the Posies, Teenage Fanclub, Jeff Buckley, and Garbage. Drawing on new interviews with the band, family members, friends, and the major players at Ardent Studios in Memphis, this is the definitive history of Big Star, from their boyhood to their reunion tours.
