Sid Bernstein, a legendary music promoter who booked such top acts as Jimi Hendrix, Judy Garland, The Beatles and the Rolling Stones, has died.
He was 95 years old.
Bernstein's daughter, Casey Deutsch, said he died in his sleep at NYC's Lenox Hill Hospital.
She cited no specific illness, and said he passed away of natural causes on Wednesday.
Bernstein hit the highest of heights when he masterminded the Beatles' historic concerts at Shea Stadium and Carnegie Hall, during their prime.
