Alex Chilton

As a Memphis kid of 16, Alex Chilton, became a star with the Box Top's 'The Letter.' That period was the peak of his commercial success but he became a 'cult' hero with Big Star and with his solo albums influencing countless alternative bands over the years.

Scheduled to play this weekend at Austin's South By Southwest, Alex died on Wed. March 17th at the too young an age of 59. Sympathy goes out to his wife, Laura, and son, Timothy.

He will be missed.
