R.I.P. Alex Chilton (1950–2010), lead singer of the Box Tops and astonishing singer/songwriter/guitarist of Big Star.
Astonishing that he even made it to 59, all things considered; for anyone who's ever listened to the third Big Star album (Third or Sister Lovers, depending which version you got), it's amazing that he made it to 30.
Edit: Thanks to solipsistnation for this Rolling Stone link with some audio/video clips of Chilton's work.
