The first American to orbit the Earth has died. John Glenn was the last surviving member of the original Mercury astronauts. He would later have a long political career as a U.S. senator, but that didn’t stop his pioneering ways.

Glenn was 95; he had been hospitalized in an Ohio State University medical center in Columbus since last week.

A larger than life figure in the world of music, Ramone worked with some of the finest artists in the industry, spanning across multiple styles and genres of sound and entertainment. Having worked previously with Frank Sinatra in the mid to late 1960s, not to mention running the sound board at his New York studios during the recording of Sinatra’s album “L.A. Is My Lady” in 1984, Ramone was determined to work with the singer once again on some sort of recording project, and by the dawn of the early 1990s, Ramone’s desire would become a reality when he signed on as producer for one of the most controversial (at least, to critics and Sinatra fanatics) benchmarks in the Chairman’s career. It was called “Duets.”
