Alex Chilton Dies at 59

The Box Tops
He had an international #1 hit record when he was only 16! 

Alex Chilton and the Box Tops had a number of hits. The biggest were The Letter, Neon Rainbow, I met Her In Church, Cry Like A Baby and Soul Deep.

Alex Chilton died of a heart attack yesterday morning in New Orleans. He was 59.

In the picture, Alex is in the center. Instead of trying to do a biography, I'd rather let you listen to some of his music. Here's a link to Alex and the boys lip syncing "The Letter" on YouTube.
