Rest in peace Alex Chilton

Perhaps the most gifted singer song writter ever has left us at the all to young age of 59. Starting his carrer at just 16 he was a singer and guitarist for the band The Box Tops who had a major hit with The Letter in 1967. Later in 1970 when The Box Tops fell apart he formed the cult group Big Star, the debut album titled #1 Record never really made it that far; neither did there other two releases Radio City and Sister Lovers. Rollingstone magazine listed all three Big Star albums in there list of the 500 most important albums of all time. I always loved the songs The ballad of ElGoodo,September Gurls and In the Streets.
