The voice behind "The Letter"

"Give me a ticket for an airplane,
Ain't got time time to take a fast train..."

The raspy voice behind the number one hit for the Box Tops is dead at age 59. Alex Chilton was the Box Tops 16 year old lead singer when The Letter rose to number one on the charts in 1967. He died after suffering an apparent heart attack. Here is The Letter.
