This is just a very sad day Really just a very hard day. Thank you for all your thoughts and notes. My personal loss is a tiny fragment of the big picture. It’s a giant loss for the community, for music and, of course, for Gregg’s family.

Gregg was a huge part of my personal and professional life and his death feels giant and profound. I thought I was ready for it but have learned otherwise. My job also gave me a front row seat into how much he meant to how many. The music will truly live forever. It has not aged in 50 years and won’t age in 500 more.

I wrote this personal reminiscence for Billboard, and this obit for the WSJ.
Will share more up here.
