ROLLING STONES: Former Manager Is Holding Court
Former Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham to speak in New York Friday night.
The Rolling Stones' first manager, Andrew Loog Oldham, will sit with Steve Van Zandt for a question-and-answer session Friday night at the 92nd Street Y in New York City. He is promoting Charlie Is My Darling - Ireland 1965, the Stones' first concert film that will officially be released for the first time on November 6th.
Oldham, who parted ways with the Stones in 1967, now lives in South America and hosts a show for Van Zandt's Underground Garage channel on Sirius-XM satellite radio. When asked if he is surprised that the Stones are still together, 50 years later, he tells us, "What surprises me more is that no one has come up with anything different. It's still three chords and can I get laid? What else are they doing it for? It can't be to be signed to Warner Brothers Records."
Oldham just completed his third book, Stone Free, which will be published shortly.
