The man known as the "Phantom of the Fox" has died. The beloved icon Joe Patten served as technical director of the Fox Theater in Atlanta for more than 35 years.
In the 1970s, Patten formed Atlanta Landmarks, which helped save the Fox Theater from demolition.
He was also responsible for restoring the theater’s organ, and even lived in an apartment inside the venue.
“Most any show is worth seeing, or I’m not in there," said Patten.
Family members say Joe Patten passed away after a stroke at age 89.
