A recording magnate who worked with Quincy Jones and promoted Jacques Brel, suffered a fatal heart attack on May 13, announced the New York Times on May 22, 2005.

The 84-year-old Eddie Barclay also was known for holding lavish parties which were attended by names like Elton, Jack Nicholson, Prince Albert and Brigitte Bardot. In fact, the marble floors of his St.-Tropez home were inlaid with gold stars, each inscribed with the name of a celebrity who had visited.
