Paul Allen, who with Bill Gates founded Microsoft, has died at the age of 65. With the success of the PC and PC compatibles, Microsoft became hugely successful. He formally left Microsoft in 1983, but he retained his share of ownership and became a billionaire when the company went public in 1986. Local sports were also a priority; Allen bought the Seattle Seahawks NFL team in 1996 to prevent it from being moved to California, and he was a minority owner of the Seattle Sounders MLS team. When not working, Allen was by all accounts a talented guitarist and released a blues rock album in 2013.
