Robert Zildjian an iconic figure in the world of percussion, most notably all things cymbals, passed away at age 89, just a couple months before his 90th birthday in July.
Perhaps as big a loss to the percussion world as 2012’s loss of Jim Marshall to the guitar world. Maybe even bigger if you figure the genres Zildjian products crossed from Metal, Rock, Classical, Jazz, Marching Band….on & on!
When musicians die we always say, ‘The band in heaven just got better!’ …Think about all the quality instruments they are now going to have!
RIP Robert Zildjian
