He just passed away this past Friday. Rest in peace, Jerry Wexler. And thank you.

Given my vivid recollection of "Queen is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Are the Critics?" as a put down of the role of critics in rock history, it is worthy of note that at least two journalists have been inducted in the Non-Performer category (Wexler and in 1994/1995, Paul Ackerman).

Before rock and roll came to be, there was no team producer in the recording industry dictionary until Jerry Wexler came into the picture. Wexler said "No one knew how to make a record when I came onboard." "You just went into the studio, turned on the microphone and said play."
