Artists have responded to the death of Phil Ramone, the legendary producer of so many great artists, who died over the weekend at the age of 72.

In a career spanning over 50 years, he was nominated for 33 grammys, and won 14 times, according to Billboard.

According to ultimateclassicrock.com:

His discography is a veritable who’s who of the last half-century of popular music, working with such luminaries as Paul Simon, Frank Sinatra, Bob Dylan, Tony Bennett, Billy Joel, Ray Charles and Paul McCartney.

Some reactions from musicians, according to breitbart.com:

“A friend, a musical genius and the most lovable person. It was a thrill for me to have worked with Phil, and I have so many wonderful memories.”–Elton John

“So much of my music was shaped by him and brought to fruition by him. I have lost a dear friend – and my greatest mentor. The music world lost a giant today.”–Billy Joel

“Truly a tragic loss for us on earth but what a wonderful blessing for heaven. As I’ve always said, `Love you Phil, God Bless.’”–Stevie Wonder
