bogartNeil Bogart is best remembered as co-founder of Casablanca Records, the one time home of such acts as KISS, Angel, Donna Summer, the Village People, Parliament and Cher.  Casablanca was one of the labels closely associated with the rise of disco.  In the late ’70s, Bogart founded Boardwalk Records which he hoped would be to new wave what Casablanca was to disco.  Joan Jett was one of the flagship artists of the label.  Bogart died of lymphoma at the age of 39.
