FameRank: 6

"William Alexander "Alex" Chilton" was an American songwriter, guitarist, singer and producer, best known as the lead singer of The Box Tops and Big Star (band)/Big Star. Chilton's early commercial success in the 1960s as a teen vocalist for The Box Tops was never repeated in later years with Big Star and in his subsequent Independent music/indie music solo career on small labels, but he drew an obsessive following among indie and Alternative rock/alternative music musicians, and is frequently cited as a seminal influence by influential rock artists and bands.
