As the Memphis Commercial Appeal reports, songwriter and pop iconoclast Alex Chilton passed away on Wednesday at a New Orleans hospital. While sources can’t confirm the cause of death, it is believed to be from a heart attack. He was 59.

Oddly enough, Chilton had been scheduled to perform this weekend at SXSW, on Saturday, with his reunited act, Big Star. He was also scheduled to perform in Memphis on May 15th.
