RIP Ahmet Ertegun

Posted on: Friday, Dec 15, 2006

The co-founder of Atlantic Records Ahmet Ertegun has died, aged 83.

I don’t think that it is possible to describe the influence of Atlantic Records on popular music.  Let’s just mention three of my favourite ever acts – Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin and Led Zeppelin.

The BBC have an excellent obituary here.
