Obituary - Allan Rinde

Bookmark and Share
Allan Rinde, music industry figure, restaurateur and night club entrepreneur died on Friday afternoon December 14, 2012 at age 71 in Palm Springs, CA. He succumbed to a heart attack.

The New York-born Rinde began his music career as a writer for both Rock Magazine and Cash Box in the early '60s. He moved to Los Angeles in 1969 as West Coast Editor for Cash Box, and was the first journalist to review the unreleased rock opera "Jesus Christ Superstar." Allan and his friend MCA music publisher Don Williams, who had possession of a single acetate copy of the recording, created a buzz in the industry that ultimately resulted in the release and subsequent phenomenon of Andrew Webber & Tim Rice.

Allan joined Columbia Records, then under the aegis of Clive Davis, and proceeded to shake up the label's A&R Dept. He signed several groups that became Columbia's hottest chart acts, including Dr. Hook, the Shel-Silverstein-inspired band whose string of hits included "Sylvia's Mother," and "On the Cover of The Rolling Stone."

Always a lover of Chinese Food, Allan began studying with noted chef Sophie Wong and developed a distinctive Jewish-influenced Chinese cooking, which prompted him to open the Fairfax Avenue restaurant Genghis Cohen in 1984. When Genghis became a West LA phenom, Allan expanded the facility with the addition of a Cabaret room, called Genghis Cantina featuring an eclectic array of singer-songwriters, acoustic bands and future recording hit makers. Allan could often be found at the door, personally greeting his friends and customers, an eclectic mix of music business and show business clientele.

Genghis Cohen, a success from the first day, remained so for 25 years, until Allan sold the restaurant and Cantina to his longtime Maitre'd, Ray Kiu. and his family, who today continue the Genghis Cohen tradition.

Allan, who counts a sister, Helen , a niece Jana and songwriter ex-wife Toni Wine in his immediate family, retired in Cathedral City, CA., in 2003. A memorial gathering is being planned for late January, at Genghis Cohen.

FB has launched a new page, Allan Rinde-In Memoriam, gathering stories and tributes.
