Mitch Miller has died at the age of 99. He was a big wheel in the record business for a lot of years and hosted the hugely successful Sing Along with Mitch TV show.
He also famously hated rock ‘n’ roll.
Still, Mitch Miller invented something that has benefited countless rock bands, especially The Eagles. In 1958 he put together a collection of songs Johnny Mathis had already recorded and the “Greatest Hits” record was born.
