RIP Ahmet Ertegun
The R&B and soul music pioneer who popularized Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin and opened the door commercially to the British Invasion, was also a big soccer fan (betcha didn't know that!)
I think he probably went the way he wanted to go - he fell and hit his head at a Rolling Stones concert and just never woke up. I wonder what song the boys were playing at the time?

Definitely how I want to go. Imagine that, at his age still rocking at a Stones concert. That's fantastic. Sad that he passed, though, but what a great life he must have had.
