For music lovers around Nashville there were many times we would make the drive to West End for something to eat, goof around in Centennial Park and make a stop in at Tower Records. It was just a cool place to go and listen to an incredible variety of music and see interesting people. It was a gathering place of sorts and now it is going to be just another part of the West End areas' incredible history. I hated to see Tower Books close a couple of years ago but even when that happened I never saw the day of Tower Records going out of business. Ah but alas, the death bell has rung. Goodbye old friend, goodbye.......You will be missed.
