Passing of a great artist

In later years, I heard that on August 17, 1979 at a rehearsal at Istanbul Radio, Aka said he felt ill and stayed in the rehearsal room while the other musicians took a break outside. They returned to find him slumped in his chair, having breathed his last. He loved his profession so much, it seemed that fate chose an appropriate time for him to go.
