LOS ANGELES (AP) — A former Epic Records president who worked with acts including Celine Dion, Michael Jackson and Rage Against the Machine has died.
Epic Records announced on its official Twitter feed Tuesday that Polly Anthony died. She led Epic from 1997 to 2003.
A rare female label head, Anthony went on to become president of Dreamworks and then co-president of Geffen Records. She also worked with Shakira, Macy Gray, Pearl Jam and Jennifer Lopez.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Anthony died from pancreatic cancer last week at her home in Beverly Hills, Calif. She was 59.
