tim-carrTim Carr was a songwriter, producer, and A&R executive who made perhaps his biggest mark on the music business while at Capitol, Dreamworks and Geffen Records.  While at Capitol, Carr was instrumental in signing such bands as the Beastie Boys and Megadeth to the label.  Throughout his career he also worked with such acts as Lush, Babes In Toyland, David Byrne, and Information Society.  Prior to his record company work, Carr, who was living in Minneapolis, wrote music reviews for the local press and put on a local music festival.  During the early 2000s, he moved to Thailand where he was worked with local rock singer, Sek Loso.  He was also working on a music documentary.  According to various sources, Carr’s body was discovered in his home by his landlord with at least one apparently fatal stab wound to the chest.  Other circumstances surrounding his death were not immediately released.  Tim Carr was 57 when he passed away.
