Vale, James Young
Aston Microphones founder passes away.
Tributes are flowing for Aston Microphones founder James Young after news broke of his fatal heart attack earlier in the week. Those who had the fortune of crossing paths with him knew him for his larger-than-life personality and humour. This joie de vivre permeated his personal and business lives where his generous support and enthusiasm allowed others to get a foothold within the industry.
Young relocated to Malta with his family shortly after the sale of Aston Microphones to Behringer 14 months ago, but those close to him say that — despite the desire to take a break from the audio industry — his mind wouldn’t have been far from new projects.
With his frequent visits to Australia, many in the local community will be touched by the loss. AudioTechnology was inspired by his passion and are saddened to hear of his untimely passing.
