Creative Networks presents Pop Svengali, Simon Napier-Bell


Post code : LS2 9AQ

‘Music extraordinaire’, Simon Napier-Bell, has undertaken pretty much every job there is in the Music Industry, from roadie through to manager, producer, songwriter, journalist and to author of three best selling books on the business.

Apart from co-writing Dusty Springfield’s first No1 hit, ‘You Don’t have to Say You Love Me’, he is probably best-known as the manager of The Yardbirds, Marc Bolan, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Ultravox … oh, and 1980’s pop legends, Wham! Napier-Bell – with the cynicism and detachment of all good rock managers – just tells it like it is.
