R.I.P. Ahmet Ertegun

1923-2006

Ahmet.jpg I'm late with this post, but it's no less important. The great Ahmet Ertegun, founder of Atlantic Records, passed away last Thursday at age 83. Ertegun's death was the result of a brain injury sustained during a fall backstage at a Rolling Stones concert on October 29. Mr. Ertegun had been in a coma since then. For a good run-down of Ertegun's importance in pop music, I recommend Jon Pareles' piece from Saturday's New York Times
