In THE LAST SULTAN: The Life and Times of Ahmet Ertegun (Simon & Schuster), Robert Greenfield skillfully chronicles the exploits of a man whose amazing life and brilliant career changed the shape of popular music in America and throughout the world as well. An upper-class kid who fell in love with ‘low class’ music, Ahmet Ertegun grew up to become the man behind some of music’s biggest names – from Ray Charles to Aretha Franklin; Led Zeppelin; Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young; and the Rolling Stones. Ahmet’s unique personality and non-stop lifestyle rivaled that of the superstars he signed to his label.
