ATLANTIC’S AHMET ERTEGUN DIES


I’m nursing a cold so I don’t have time (yet) to write up a proper tribute but to put it simply, Ahmetwas one of the most important figures in the history of R&B/soul as the founder (along with brother Nesuhi) of Atlantic Records. “Visionary” is not too generous a term here. Alas, Ahmet passed away today, at the age of 83.
