The Worst Managers

Postby Moleskin » 17 May 2017, 14:32

The roll-call of those called upon to manage rock artists who simply cocked up or weren't up to the mark in some way or another. I'll start.

1) Col Tom Parker - the films, Vegas, the insistence on publishing rights, you name it
2) Whoever sent Spirit on a tour of radio stations instead of Woodstock
3) Rikki Farr for the Action.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
