Alex Chilton dead in New Orleans at age 59

Amazing singer-songwriter and producer Alex Chilton, best known as part of the band Big Star, has died at the age of 59. He was taken to a New Orleans hospital where he was pronounced dead. He is believed to have suffered a heart attack.

Chilton was scheduled to to perform with Big Star at the SXSW Music Conference in Austin, TX on Saturday, March 20.

Chilton wrote so many great songs during his career, so I pulled two of my many favorites for you to stream below, "September Gurls" and "Life is White." Time to give the my copy #1 Record / Radio City a spin.

"September Gurls"

"Life is White"
