Ahmet Ertegun is dead. Long live Ahmet Ertegun.

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

This man was responsible for a huge quantity of my favorite music and some of my favorite records. Without Ahmet there would be no Atlantic Records, without Atlantic Records...I don't even want to think about the musicians who wouldnt've made the records I adore. I will, however, give you 2 names - Ray Charles and Tom Dowd - and you can figure out the rest.

There will never be another like you Ahmet.
