That's what I read somewhere this morning from an associate, tho I have yet to see confirmation from a major news outlet. I know he's been in hospice care for a while. R.I.P. (Stax issues notwithstanding.)

91 years old. Whoa.

Not the best confirmation & no real details beyond the date, but the first line of this entry confirms.

Jerry Wexler was one of the true geniues of 20th century music. Look at all the work he did for Atlantic, wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
One of my heroes, he'll be missed

All of what Wexler did for the music industry is way more important than if either John McCain or Barak Obama wins this election.

Dickinson used to tell good Jerry Wexler stories! Would love to hear them again!

Yeah, R.I.P.
I've been tellin' everybody about his death all week and all I get is, "Jerry who?"
It was time but it's just too bad there are no replacements for guys like that today.
