More are aware of Big Star’s music than they realize – but that doesn’t help.
Ask the average American if they know Big Star and they’ll shrug uninterested shoulders. Ask if they know the theme song for “That 70’s Show” and they’ll nod in recognition approval. Cheap Trick did a killer job interpreting the original – but goddamn, it’s a fucking bummer this is how most acknowledge a Giant’s existence – adding to the mythos that Big Star are the best band you never heard.
Watch Nothing Can Hurt Me Know – and realize truth – even if you’ve been a forever fan.
