There has never been a successful popular musical act that didn't have a powerful manager behind the scenes. As the rock industry has developed, so has the style of artist management. From the con man antics of Colonel Tom Parker, who managed Elvis Presley, to the virtually invisible Simon Fuller, who masterminded the Spice Girls, this enticing book reveals the intricacies of this parallel evolution.Without Parker, for example, Presley might have remained a regional phenomenon in the South. Rock Managers explores similar relationships between Brian Epstein and the Beatles, Andrew Loog Oldham and the Rolling Stones, Albert Grossman and Bob Dylan, Freddie DeMann and Madonna, Peter Grant and Led Zeppelin, Danny Goldberg and Nirvana, Don Arden and ELO, and other managers and artists.
