Jerry Wexler RIP

Posted on: Friday, Aug 15, 2008

I see a few reports that Jerry Wexler passed away last night aged 91 at his home in Florida.

I do not need to describe the impact of Wexler on the music business.  Billboard magazine has a page on Jerry.

“I asked him once,” said Mr. Thurman, the filmmaker, “ ‘What do you want
written on your tombstone, Jerry?’ He said, ‘Two words: More bass.’ ”
