Producer and engineer Stan Ross, co-founder of Hollywood’s iconic Gold Star Recording Studio and the music recordist and mixer for the 1972 movie Snoopy, Come Home, died Friday in Burbank, California. He was 82.
Ross died at Providence St. Joseph’s Medical Center of complications following surgery, his family said.
The second in the series of Peanuts feature films, Snoopy, Come Home marked Woodstock and Franklin’s animated debut.
Gold Star was famed for its ground-breaking “Wall of Sound” technique developed by producer Phil Spector. The building at Santa Monica Boulevard and Vine Street was the home of over 100 Top 40 hits, among them such records produced by Spector as “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling” by the Righteous Brothers and “Be My Baby” by the Ronettes.
