A COLLEGUE REMEMBERS LUNDVALL

Bob Sherwood, who was VP Promotion and SVP Marketing at Columbia when Bruce Lundvall headed the label, has posted a brief but heartfelt tribute to his friend and colleague.

“For those who may not have already heard, the legendary music-lover, record industry exec, exceptional human being and artist once known as ‘Smooth Lundvall’ has died,” Sherwood begins. “As many of you knew, he suffered from Parkinson’s disease and had been in a special-care facility for some time. If there was someone more respected and beloved by those who worked for and with him, the name doesn’t spring immediately to mind.

"God bless you, Bruce."
