“Jerry Moss was one of music’s true pioneers and great entrepreneurs with a unique vision for what a label should be and how to build trusting long-term relationships with artists.  The independent spirit he and Herb Alpert championed at A&M Records is foundational to the culture that powers UMG today.  On behalf of everyone at UMG, we offer our deepest condolences to his family.”

Sir Lucian Grainge, Chairman & CEO, Universal Music Group.
