Alex Chilton: 1950-2010

It's been a sad week in the music industry this week, as Ron Lundy, the legendary DJ from WABC and WCBS-FM in New York for four decades, passed away earlier this week at the age of 75. And last night, Alex Chilton, the lead singer of the Box Tops and later Big Star, died of a heart attack at the age of 59.

Godspeed, gentlemen.

Here is the Box Tops doing their classic "The Letter" on a TV show called Upbeat.
