Alex Chilton, R.I.P.

Alex Chilton 1950-2010 R.I.P.

Major bummer … as a teen lead singer for the immensely successful Box Tops, in seventies and eighties guiding light of the not as commercially successful but hugely influential Big Star, Alex Chilton was a true working class rock’n'roll journeyman who paid his dues every day of his life. On St. Patrick’s Day, Alex passed away in the city of New Orleans, suspected heart attack the cause. He will be missed by one and all who loved him and his music.
