Robert Stigwood: 1934-2016

Bye dear.

Wonder who'll be the first to mention 'you-know-what'?

Update: Telegraph obituary; 'He never married'. Boom!

And in The Times...

Stigwood never married. In his 1988 book, Starmakers & Svengalis: The History of British Pop Management, the author Johnny Rogan identified him as part of a “homosexual network” that dominated British pop management in its early years and which also included Epstein, Napier-Bell, Larry Parnes and Kit Lambert. Rogan attributed the phenomenon to the fact that pop music was then one of the few arenas in which gay people did not have to live a lie.
