Alex Chilton has died

Alex Chilton, the brilliant and hugely influential singer, songwriter, and guitarist of Big Star and The Box Tops, died today. He surely will be missed. I shot this picture in 1999, where Chilton was performing with a newly formed Big Star. Bob Mehr reports on the terrible news in Memphis’s Commercial Appeal (Bob had recently written liner notes for the Big Star box set, Keep An Eye On The Sky).
