(Classic Rock) Century Media Records co-owner Oliver Withoft has died at the age of 49, it has been confirmed. The businessman, who'd been on board since a year after the company was founded in 1988, had been ill for some time, and had stepped back from day-to-day duties alongside founder Robert Kampf.

The independent label's roster of around 100 bands includes Iced Earth, In This Moment and Fozzy, and previously worked with Strapping Young Lad, Duff McKagan's Loaded and Avantasia, among many others.

Former North American label president Don Robertson tells Billboard: "Century Media has been a force in music for over twenty-five years under Oliver's leadership. It was an honour to work with him." more on this story
