Laurence Myers talks about his life as the music business executive who signed the little-known David Bowie… And who...

Looked after the The Rolling Stones… Helped reorganise The Beatles' Apple Corp… Masterminded a landmark court case that disrupted music publishers exploiting songwriters including Elton John… Started GTO Records, the company that signed Donna Summer, Billy Ocean, The Walker Brothers and Heatwave… Had dinner with John Lennon… Tea with Colonel Parker… Left Led Zeppelin's cash in a safe and lost the key… Threw Rod Stewart out of his office… Turned down chances to manage Queen and Andrea Bocelli… Almost tempted Stevie Wonder away from Motown… And foolishly allowed Iggy Pop to stay in his house.

Laurence is joined by the well-known journalist Craig McLean, an editor covering arts, music and creative industries. Craig, formerly Deputy Editor of The Face, is a regular contributor to The Saturday Telegraph, The Observer Magazine, The Times, ES Magazine, FT Weekend and Mail on Sunday.
