Wind-up Ruler's Will

AN UNUSUAL WIND-UP: Former Wind-up Records founder and CD One-Stop head Alan Meltzer left a total of $1.5 million to his chauffeur and doorman in his will. Meltzer, who started the label with his wife, Diana, bequeathed $1 milion to Jean Laborde, a 54-year-old father of five who served as his driver, and $500k to Chamil Demiraj, the doorman who worked at his Upper East Side apartment building for 15 years, according to the N.Y. Post. Meltzer died last October at the age of 67. He started Wind-up after acquiring indie Grass Records, going on to sign Creed and Evanescence, who were discovered by his wife. He left the label in 2010. Diana, who stood to inherit at least a third of his $10 million estate if the two had not divorced a year before his death, commented on his generous gift. "If he wants to give [his money] to the bums, he can give it to the bums… We're divorced. The man is dead." (1/31p)
