An influence to soo much of what we grew up on....The Replacements to the Goo Goo Dolls to Sloan all influenced by Alex Chilton. 59 is too young

One of my fave singers & songs of ALL TIME.
I saw him at Ont. Place 15 or so years ago with the Box Tops at a 60's band concert.

How did I miss this? Just hearing of this now. I think I am working too much. Such a loss. One of my all time favorite tunes is "Thirteen."
