    I discovered Big Star and their “Number One Record’ from my very first girlfriend decades ago. Since then, I have loved all three Big Star records as well as the Chris Bell “I Am The Cosmos’ album. I can always listen to Big Star… anytime. Recently; while an tour with the Melvins, I had the opportunity to visit Ardent Studios (in Memphis) and meet Big Star drummer Jody Stephens. He gave us all a tour. I was prudent enough to give Jody one of my Melvin parodies. This one was of the band (Melvin) impersonating Big Star on their “Radio City’ album cover. That led to this: a rendering of the original band (Stephens, Bell, Andy Hummel and of course Alex Chilton) with the trademark star behind them. This drawing is based on a photograph taken by Michael O’Brien. People seemed to dig our design; now it’s on a shirt! Thanks to Addison at Ardent and Jody for making this happen, me and Charles are very excited to have the honor of doing a Big Star shirt. We hope the fans of Big Star like it as well. – Brian Walsby
