Condolences to the family and friends of radio, label and music writing pro ART PHILLIPS BOXMAN, who lost his battle against a rare form of cancer early SUNDAY (6/19) morning.
SONGS OF THE ISLANDS MUSIC Owner and longtime friend JON SCOTT told ALL ACCESS, "His tremendous pain is over. Anybody in the music business knew that ART was a passionate lover of music and always there when you needed him. He was a good man! Prayers go out to his loving wife JILL QUINN. I've been up in CAMBRIA with him and JILL a lot. He was in hospice care. During those days I started reading him music stories and he loved them. He died from cancer of the appendix - only 600-1000 people a year are diagnosed with it,"
PHILLIPS' career ran over four decades. He got his start at Rock KILO/COLORADO SPRINGS. From there he went to the ALBUM NETWORK, which led to BILLBOARD's AIRPLAY MONITOR. He then had a five-year run as VP/Promotion at HOLLYWOOD RECORDS and the same title at RCA RECORDS for five years before he transitioned over to the WELK MUSIC GROUP, as VP/Promotion & Artist Development for 11 years. Lastly he ran ART PHILLIPS MUSIC MARKETING.
Information about services is pending.
