3rd/Sister Lovers is an album that has meant as much to me personally as any album ever. Alex died of a heart attack just before he was due to appear at SXSW. Fortunately, they were able to take his body over to the Philip Morris/McDonald's Embalming Tent, and then from there to the Levi's/Spin Magazine Casket Factory.

I'm not sure where he was buried, but I hope he is finally at peace.
