Published Jul 20, 2015Josh Greenberg, co-founder of the recently shut-down streaming site Grooveshark, has passed away at the age of 28. According to police, he was found dead on Sunday (July 19) evening in his Gainesville, FL home.
Speaking with the Gainesville Sun, Greenberg's mother said he had no health problems. She also claimed there was no evidence of foul play, injuries or drugs at the scene of his death.
Further, his mother suggested he was relieved that Grooveshark had been shut down earlier this year after a long, arduous legal process that included a $17 billion lawsuit. "He was excited about potential new things that he was going to start," she told the paper.
Following the loss of their lawsuit, Grooveshark's parent company Escape Media Group paid $75 million in damages to Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment and Warner Music Group.
