Growing up during the Great Depression, Russ developed his first music store by converting his father’s Tower Cut Rate Drug Store. Eventually creating the Sacramento-based Tower Records, the company went bankrupt in 2006. Despite the setback, he continued working, with plans to create a new store. Later in life, Russ was the subject of the 2015 documentary All Things Must Pass, which detailed his life.
Upon the news of his passing, San Franciso Weekly published the following passage in his honor:

“Tower Records has been gone for more than a decade, but virtually everyone over 25 remembers browsing through CD racks in the mall. Having been founded in Sacramento in 1960, Tower expanded to San Francisco eight years later, opening up in a former grocery store in North Beach after nursing a hangover at a nearby diner. At its peak, it was the original megastore, with international locations — including one in the Castro, in a spot that later housed now-defunct locations of CVS and Radio Shack. “

There are currently no plans to hold a funeral or memorial. Instead, Michael confirmed that the family will host a large, private party for friends.
