Jon Auer Talks to Billboard; They Run Pic of Dreamy Alex Chilton

Also not Jon Auer... but run a Google image search for "Jon Auer" and this will be one of your results

Big Star's Jon Auer talks to Billboard.com... but they used a photo of Alex Chilton to accompany the interview. Classy!

Auer points out that he and Ken Stringfellow, both of the Posies, have "been in the band longer than the original lineup was together." He says, "Ken and I consider ourselves hired guns, but Alex and Jody clearly think of us as equal members at this point." Someone's a little defensive... maybe if he saw his own picture in an interview every once in a while it would help.

Auer wants fans to judge the album on its own merits. "You can't compete with a myth."

Oh, fine. Here's Jon Auer. Maybe they couldn't find a picture of him with his eyes open.

Well I guess there's a lot worse people to be mistaken for! Appreciating the stream of power pop at the mo'. The Posies are playing London soon but it's on my mum's birthday so I can't go. I curse you Fate and your hideous sister Destiny!

Good point. Maybe they thought he looked like Falkner. Glad you like the power pop... bummer about missing the Posies but that is good of you to put your mum before music. Fate and Destiny's beautiful cousin Karma will surely reward you!

I have a feeling they may be back in London sooner than you think :-) Thanks for the tip on the article!

Krikey, Michelle, I find myself momentarily speechless. (That never lasts for long) Eep... you're welcome?

Hey, graduate, look how quickly Destiny's cousin Karma -- or Michelle -- worked! (sometimes there are multiple names, like in Greek and Roman mythology)
