The colorful promoter who made Colorado a destination for the biggest names in music died Sunday. Barry Fey was 73.
The cause of death was not immediately available, but an unusually downtrodden Fey told The Denver Post last week that he was recovering from hip-replacement surgery.
"Barry Fey is one of the giants of a generation," said William Dean Singleton, chairman and publisher of The Denver Post and a close friend of Fey's. "He brought the music scene to Colorado, and every part of the music scene you see here today has his fingerprints on it."
