Don Kirshner - 1935 - 2011

For those of you who may only know of Don Kirshner from the Paul Schaffer imitation on old Saturday Night Live reruns, read his obit from Rolling Stone.  I hadn't realized he was behind the Brill Building songwriters.  I know they have some DVDs out of Don Kirshner's Rock Concert but maybe his death will lead to them showing on a network.  VH1 Classic, I'm talking to you.
