Tower Records, R.I.P.

The venerable record store chain will go out of business later this fall, a casualty of the iTunes era. I stopped in the one on Broad Street today, and it felt like a funeral or something.

I didn't grow up with Tower, but I do have fond memories of waiting in line early in the morning at the one on E. 4th St. in New York, for Springsteen tickets. But honestly, I think I've bought maybe two CDs this year.
