RIP Russ Solomon, 92
« on: March 07, 2018, 09:30:39 AM »
Russ Solomon, who pioneered the superstore hangout for music lovers by founding Tower Records
and expanded it worldwide before internet pirates and crushing debts rendered the chain obsolete
and bankrupt, died on Sunday night at his home in Sacramento.  He was 92.
