When Steve Jobs passed away on October 5, 2011, music was an instrumental part of his private funeral as well as the life celebration tribute held a few weeks later at Apple’s head office when thousands of his employees stopped work to celebrate the memory of the technology giant who helped usher in the computer age.
Years before his diagnosis of pancreatic cancer which took his life at age 56, Jobs was paid a visit by internationally-renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma and Jobs was so touched by the music he heard that he made Ma promise to play at his funeral, a promise Yo-Yo Ma fulfilled along with Joan Baez another of Jobs’ favorite musicians. The later celebration at Apple included singer Norah Jones the band Coldplay who played their own tribute to the technology entrepreneur.
The fact that music was included in his sendoff tributes shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who followed his storied career. Jobs was a man who not only reinvented the modern music scene with the creation of the iPod digital music player but also created the world’s largest online music retailer iTunes which currently has over ten million songs for purchase and downloading.
