Don Kirshner Rest in Peace

In 2010 it appears big names behind the music scene are passing away. First Pat Moran the producer died now Don Kirshner a rock publicist has passed away. Here is a link to an AP article on his death.

Kirshner had something to do with The Archies, The Monkees, Neil Diamond, Carole King and Neil Sedaka. He had a television show in the 70's. Historic Films stated his show "ROCK CONCERT is to the 1970s what THE ED SULLIVAN SHOW was to the 1950s-60s. "The Rolling Stones. Led Zeppelin, The Eagles, The Sex Pistols, Sly and the Family Stone, REO Speedwagon, Kiss, Jackson Browne, Bob Marley, Black Sabbath, Rod Stewart and more all appeared on the show. Pretty much a big list of all the stars of that era performed on the show. A show before MTV.

Now MTV, VH1 don't play as much music. I am sure his show was better than American Idol...
