My NEW PJMedia post — fight it out in the comments!
Every year, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame also honors “behind the scenes” types — managers, disk jockeys, producers — with a lifetime achievement award.
Last year the recipient was long-time Rolling Stone manager and all-around Swinging London scenester Andrew Loog Oldham.
Other inductees in that category have included Quincy Jones, Brian Epstein and Don Kirshner.
It’s probably too early for my suggestion to be considered an obvious one, but I expect someday we’ll see this award go to the hugely annoying, downright duplicitous and unarguably essential Malcolm McLaren.
This year? Who knows?
Rodney Bingenheimer would be a hoot. Why the hell not?
