Death Summary: On March 13, 2009 Alan Livingston died at his Beverly Hills home. Its been stated that he died from “age-related causes”. He was 91.

Who was Alan Livingston : Livingston was a businessman, songwriter, producer, and probably best known for creating Bozo the Clown.

While working at Capitol Records, Livingston was given the task of creating a children’s record. After some deliberation he came up with “Bozo the Clown”. The first Bozo album, entitled Bozo at the Circus, was released in 1946. The concept of the album, record-reader, was the first of its kind. It allowed children to listen to the album while following along in an illustrated book. Soon Livingston handed the Bozo reigns over to Pinto Colvig, the original voice for Walt Disney’s Pluto, Goofy, Grumpy, Sleepy and many other characters, for the recording sessions. The role of Bozo the clown would later go to Lawrence Weiss, who would host the WGN television show.

Livingston is also credited for being the driving force behind the Capitol Records Tower, which is said to be the first circular office building in the world. The tower can be seen in numerous movies, for instance in “The Day After Tomorrow” the tower is taken down in a matter of seconds by a tornado.
