R.I.P. Alex Chilton

Alex Chilton of power pop legends Big Star and also singer for The Box Tops has passed away at 59 years old. I've loved Big Star for a long time and if you have never heard of them I suggest checking them out. You've most likely at least heard one song of theirs if you have ever seen the opening credits to That 70's Show. Sad news indeed, RIP Alex.

Big Star - 'September Gurls'

Big Star - 'The Ballad of El Goodo'

Big Star - 'Thirteen'

The Box Tops - 'The Letter'

The Replacements - 'Alex Chilton' (the video is just Paul Westerberg live)
