Alex Chilton Dead at 59
The lead singer of the Box Tops and Big Star died March 17 at age 59 after complaining of health problems earlier in the day.
Though best known for "The Letter," his No. 1 hit with the Box Tops, Chilton and his instrospective alternative-pop tunes are credited for inspiring indie acts, including R.E.M. and The Replacements, who paid homage to him with its song "Alex Chilton."
