In Memory: Phil Walden, Jan. 11, 1940 - April 23, 2006

It was three years ago today that the music industry lost a hero, the South lost a favorite son and a family lost their patriarch.

“That's the old American way – if you've got a good thing, then overdo it."

- Record Executive Phil Walden

  1. Lakeside Water Park? Was that the location of the famous Durr's skating rink?
