Robert Stigwood - RIP


Recommended Posts

Probably totally unheard of to current generations he was arguably much more significant to UK (and indeed World) popular culture than the celebrated Brian Epstein, had a much longer run, and covered a far "broader range".  He was also a bit of a character, of the sort that would have been highly un-PC these grey days.

 

Telstar: The Joe Meek Story was shown on TV over the holiday period, so he was already on my mind when the sad news broke.

I agree with your comments about his leading role in the culture of Blighty and beyond.  Yep, they're dropping like flies!
