August 15, 2008
Studio City, CA - All of us at CaroleKing.com were saddened to hear of the passing of music legend Jerry Wexler. Not only did Jerry coin the term "Rhythm and Blues," but he was also integral in signing such musical legends as Ray Charles, Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin and Dusty Springfied.
Carole King said of him, "Jerry Wexler changed musical history, he changed the world, and he certainly changed my life--all for the better."
