Rick Parashar, Pearl Jam ‘Ten’/Temple of the Dog Producer, Dead at 50
By Brian Ives
The producer reportedly passed away Aug. 14. A message on his official website reads “Rest Peacefully Rick/December 13, 1963 – August 2014.”
Northwest Music Scene posted that the King County Medical Examiner reported that Parashar died at his home in Queen Ann, Seattle, Wash., from natural causes and that Parashar’s assistant Matthew Freeman confirmed that information.
Parashar and his brother Raj founded Seattle’s London Bridge Studios in 1985. The studio was, at one point, the center of the city’s burgeoning scene in the late ’80s and early ’90s.
