Tower Records founder Russ Solomon passed away on Sunday while watching the Oscars with a drink in his hand.
He was 92.
"Ironically, he was giving his opinion of what someone was wearing that he thought was ugly, then asked (his wife) Patti to refill his whiskey," Michael Solomon, his son and former chief executive of Tower, told the Sacramento Bee.
When Patti returned with his refill, he had passed away from an apparent heart attack.
The SacBee called it the “perfect coda” for a risk-taking entrepreneur who built an empire selling music to generations of music lovers.
