Russ Solomon, the visionary founder of Tower Records, has died

In honor of Russ Solomon, the visionary, iconic founder of Tower Records, who passed a few days ago at the age of 92, I wanted to share the following clip from an interview I did a few years back with Doug Biggert, the man responsible, among other things, for bringing zines to Tower.

I never had the occasion to meet Solomon, but, from what Biggert has told me, and what I’ve gleaned from having watched the Tower documentary, All Things Must Pass, he seems like a hell of a man, and a terrific boss – the kind of guy who hired creative people, put them in positions where they could be successful, and then actually allowed them to be themselves… There should be more like him.
