Trade Regrets

On September 14th, we received the following from NAMM's Dan Del Fiorentino:

Music publishing pioneer Ed Murphy passed away on September 1.  

Ed Murphy clearly enjoyed his career in the field of music publishing! With a big grin, he recounted marvelous stories of songwriting legends for which he became acquainted while serving on the ASCAP Board as well as industry icons he worked with on the Music Publisher’s Association (MPA) Board. As the former president of G. Schirmer Music Publishing, Ed saw many of the most significant changes that affected the print business including buyouts and mergers as well as the introduction of the copy machine and the Internet.  He was proud of the organizations he represented over his long career and the many friends he made along the way.
