The legendary Alex Chilton has passed away. The late musician was a member of the Box Tops and the influential Big Star. With a career that began in 1966, Chilton had a vast influence on countless musicians, including the The Replacements who wrote this about him in the song that took his name:

Children by the million sing for Alex Chilton when he comes 'round They sing "I'm in love. What's that song? I'm in love with that song." I never travel far, without a little Big Star

Our deepest condolences to his friends and family.
