Bob Rice Dies, Trailblazing Agent for Video Game Music,
According to his representatives, Bob Rice, an agent who was among the first to recognize the potential of the video game music sector, has passed away. He was 79.
The ground-breaking rock video game “Journey Escape” for the Atari 2600 was created and executive produced by Rice. Although the name also alludes to the bizarre gameplay of the band-on-the-road adventure, the game featured members of the rock band Journey and used music from the “Escape” album.
Our heartfelt condolences go out to the deceased’s family and friends, who have been struggling with the loss of such an intelligent and compassionate individual.
