Tragic. Transcendent. Frustrating. Profoundly influential. These descriptors are forever linked to the late, great Alex Chilton. In A Man Called Destruction, award-winning, Phoenicia author Holly George-Warren (The Road to Woodstock, Public Cowboy No. 1: The Life and Times of Gene Autry, Punk 365) lays out the tumultuous ride of the Memphis rocker's 60-year life, a journey soundtracked by the wealth of incredible music he left behind.

Peter Aaron and I chat with Holly about Chilton's life and music, as well as her improbable meeting with Chilton in New Orleans when Chilton was washing dishes.
