Grooveshark Co-Founder Josh Greenberg Found Dead | Music News
Josh Greenberg, a co-founder of popular online music streaming service Grooveshark, has been found dead at his home in Florida. He was 28 years-old. An autopsy is due to be performed, but police in Gainesville said via Twitter, that there was “no evidence of foul play or suicide“. Greenburg was a co-founder of the streaming service, which first launched almost a decade ago in 2006, along with Sam Tarantino.
The service was forced to close in the spring after bouts of legal troubles with record labels. As the site closed, its founders posted a message which read, “We made very serious mistakes. We failed to secure licenses from rights holders for the vast amount of music on the service“. According to BBC News, Greenburg’s mother is reported to have believed her son had been “excited about potential new things he was going to start“, before his death.
