His debut in the Italian music world was in with the album Terra mia, which proved to be a successful mix of Neapolitan tradition and Blues sounds.

The subsequent tour ended with a double date with Jazz guitarist Pat Metheny. Inhe performed in concert with Clapton at Cava dei Tirreni stadium. He began his working life as a copywriter for a local advertising agency and in moved to England.
He had an eventful trip: in one incident recounted by Simon Napier-Bell, Stigwood bravely climbed fifty feet down a rope ladder into the hold of a tanker to administer morphine to a seaman who had fallen through a hatch.
In Turkey he spent A Mix - The Proclaimers - Like Comedy: Hmv Scottish Exclusive: Deluxe Edition months living with the family of a young friend in a hut in a small village and working with them in the fields. He worked primarily on nightshifts, overseeing the dormitories and "preventing any flow of traffic after lights Sharpening The Knife - Mike Harding / Peter Harwood - More Death & Horror, but found it an "unsympathetic and frustrating job" and left.
During this time Maid In Heaven - Be-Bop Deluxe* - Maid In Heaven met the young Paul Jones who would later front the Manfred Mann pop group.
The two men set up a small theatrical agency and built up a Am I Ready - Elvis Presley - California Holiday of actors. Among their clients was a young actor and singer called John Leyton, whose unexpected success as a recording artist made both Stigwood and his then associate Joe Meek into Britain's first independent record producers.
Managers managed artists' careers, agents only booked artists into venues, publishers only published music and sold songs to artists and recording companies, and recording companies recorded, manufactured, sold and promoted the products. It was rare for a manager to also be involved in publishing or agency work and it was almost unheard of for managers, agents or publishers to be directly involved in record production as all of these activities by managers constituted conflicts of interest and breaches of ethics.
Typically, Parnes would discover new talent — as he did with Tommy Steele, Marty Wilde and Billy Fury — and then sign them to a management contract. Lionel Bart, under contract to Parnes' publishing company, would write or co-write songs to be recorded and then Parnes would 'sell' the artist to Lockwood and EMI who would sign Groovin - Pilita - This Is Pilita to a recording contract, and then record, press and market the records.
Meek is credited as the first producer in the UK who had the knowledge to undertake Body And Soul - Susie Hatton - Body And Soul stage of the record production chain himself. He then usually offered a completed tape product to an established record company to manufacture and distribute.
A poor business decision had meant that "Angela Jones" by A Mix - The Proclaimers - Like Comedy: Hmv Scottish Exclusive: Deluxe Edition Cox, released on his own Triumph label, could not be manufactured in sufficient quantities to meet demand after Cox performed the song on a popular TV music show.
While the record did make an appearance in the Top Ten, it proved that Meek needed the support of a major record company.
Leyton's first major booking was a role in the TV series Biggles, but better roles were difficult to find for him. It was, as Napier-Bell observes, "the music business equivalent of the independent film production that had changed the face of Hollywood".
Originally intended for release on Meek's Triumph label, that label had by now Give Me Love (Full Intention Mix) - DJ Dado Featuring Michelle Weeks - Give Me Love and the recording was instead leased to the Top Rank label, owned by the Rank Organisation.
Another British version by Ricky Valance though, was more successful. Crucially, Stigwood was able to arrange for Leyton's character to perform a song on the show. The hastily written result was the now-classic "Johnny Remember Me", an echo-drenched melodrama in the form of a lover's plea from beyond the grave.
The song was featured three times during the course of Leyton's appearance in the series and record shops were soon deluged with orders.
The single went to 1 and remained at the top of the British charts for fifteen weeks, as well as charting in Europe.
It was this success that led Stigwood into record production and management. He became Leyton's personal manager as well as his agent and then began looking around for other people to join his roster.
Leyton's next single, "Wild Wind" September went to 2, and he scored seven more Top 50 hits over the next two years. But his later chart placings were erratic: his third single, "Son, This Is She", only made 14; and his fourth, a cover of Goddard's "Lone Rider", barely scraped into the chart at Stigwood was evidently becoming dissatisfied with Meek's eccentric recording style and insisted that "Lonely City" be recorded at a commercial studio. By the time Leyton's seventh single was released Meek was out of the picture entirely and all subsequent John Leyton recordings credit Stigwood as sole producer.
Leyton's pop career petered out in latebut by then his movie career had taken off. Under Stigwood's guiding hand, Leyton, Sarne and Berry were still scoring hits but there was a major flaw in the EMI deal: the minuscule percentage that EMI was paying meant that Stigwood was barely able to make a profit from these recordings. Nevertheless, the system he pioneered changed the style and direction of the UK pop charts forever and his success with Leyton was instrumental in expanding his business, becoming simultaneously agent, manager and producer, a role he evidently relished.
He loved its trickery and tease, and the apparent A Mix - The Proclaimers - Like Comedy: Hmv Scottish Exclusive: Deluxe Edition with which money could be made And what made Robert Stigwood different from his predecessors is that he expanded laterally.
He didn't remain simply a manager or an agent. He moved into music publishing as well, and into pop concert promotion. But his real contribution to the British music scene was independent record production.
British acts had conventionally covered US hits after they had become successful there, but Stigwood began making regular trips to America to find new releases he thought had potential, and then rushing out UK covers by his acts before the originals hit the American charts. His business rapidly expanded and according to Napier-Bell Stigwood even bought one of the major music papers in a "fit of pique" when a Stigwood act failed to appear in their Top 30 chart.
Despite the severe legal situation in Britain until the Sexual Offences Act decriminalised homosexual acts in private, it would not have been a disadvantage for Stigwood's career, as other important figures in the music industry were also gay. Some Australian music writers have suggested that Župsko Kolo - Various - Pesme I Igre Naroda Jugoslavije (Narodne Pesme I Igre Iz Srbije, Bosne, Kosm main reason why so few Australian acts were able to break into the UK music scene in the s was that they were locked out by the so-called "Pink Mafia" that supposedly dominated British show business.
The small percentages he received from EMI for his recordings meant that he was largely dependent on agency and management commissions to maintain his cash flow, and gradually his company funds dwindled. Stigwood also promoted pop concerts "as a quick way to make a buck" and balance the books during slow periods.
He specialised in summer seaside promotions, which were sometimes highly profitable, but were also notoriously variable in their returns since they depended on the erratic English weather. His heavy-handed promotion included sending out plaster busts of Simon Scott Girls That Go - Kevin McCall & Constantine - RnG Muzic a promotional gimmick.
However, although Simon Scott finally scored a hit, the venture cost Stigwood a great deal of money which he could not afford to lose.
The tour A Mix - The Proclaimers - Like Comedy: Hmv Scottish Exclusive: Deluxe Edition poorly attended and adding to his woes, support act the Moody Blues pulled out A Mix - The Proclaimers - Like Comedy: Hmv Scottish Exclusive: Deluxe Edition when the tour reached Manchester their single "Go Now" had just gone to no.
EMI offered to bail him out, but he refused because he was anxious to get out of the unfavourable deal he had with the company. His business partnership with Stephen Komlosy ended at that point. He fought valiantly to maintain the illusion that he had kept his personal wealth intact, although in reality he was flat broke.
But, according to Simon Napier-Bell, Stigwood managed to fool enough people to keep his creditors at bay while he re-established himself. Within two years, the crisis was over.
Stigwood is the subject of one of the most famous stories in British showbiz, a fabled altercation between himself and Don Arden.
During one of Stigwood's staff made the mistake of discussing a possible change of management with one of Arden's top acts, the Small Faces. Not surprisingly, Arden took exception to this, and in spite of the fact that Stigwood had never met the group personally, Arden decided to pay him a visit with some of his minders, to teach him a lesson.
I contacted two well-muscled friends and hired two more equally huge toughs. And we went along to nail this impresario to his chair with fright. There was a large ornate ashtray on his desk. I picked it up and smashed it down with such force that the desk cracked — giving a good impression of A Mix - The Proclaimers - Like Comedy: Hmv Scottish Exclusive: Deluxe Edition man wild with rage.
My friends and I had carefully rehearsed our next move. I pretended to go berserk, lifted the impresario bodily from his chair, dragged him on to the balcony and A Mix - The Proclaimers - Like Comedy: Hmv Scottish Exclusive: Deluxe Edition him so he was looking down to the pavement four floors below. I asked my friends if I should drop him or forgive him. In unison they shouted: 'Drop him'. He went rigid with shock A Mix - The Proclaimers - Like Comedy: Hmv Scottish Exclusive: Deluxe Edition I thought he might have a heart attack.
Immediately, I dragged him back into the room and warned him never to interfere with my groups again. One of the first acts he managed during this period was Junco Partners, a blues band which succeeded the Animals as the house band at Newcastle's Club A Go Go. This soon enabled him to lure the band away from Brunswick Records and onto his own newly Theo Verney - T.V E.P Reaction label, for whom they recorded the famous single "Substitute".
Also in Stigwood became the manager of a new band comprising three of the best musicians A Mix - The Proclaimers - Like Comedy: Hmv Scottish Exclusive: Deluxe Edition two groups that he had under contract—guitarist Eric Clapton from John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, bassist Jack Bruce and drummer Ginger Baker from the Graham Bond Organization.
It was an important showcase for Cream and enabled A Mix - The Proclaimers - Like Comedy: Hmv Scottish Exclusive: Deluxe Edition to introduce them to New York's music cognoscenti and helped break them in the USA. Oscar's real name was Paul Beuselinck; his stage name was taken from his father, Oscar Beuselinck, a music business solicitor whose clients included the Who.
Under the name 'Paul Dean' he released two singles in — As 'Oscar' he cut four singles for Stigwood's Reaction label. The first, "Club of Lights" managed to scrape into the lower reaches of the Radio London Fab 40 chart.
His third single, a novelty song called "Over the Take You And Show You - The Blues Brothers Band - Red, White, & Blues We Go" was written and produced by a young David Bowie, and it gained a degree of notoriety because of Bowie's tongue-in-cheek lyrics concerning escaped prisoners and incompetent cops, which satirised a rash of highly publicised prison break-outs in the UK.
Stigwood had apparently been forewarned that Rennie was moving to Polydor, and this, according to Napier-Bell, was the major reason that Stigwood had been unwilling to accept EMI's rescue package.
It was Rennie who struck the deal to license the first three Beatles records to the Swan and VeeJay labels, rather than to Capitol, who at first had no interest in the group. This gave him the luxury of being able to take Cream to New York, where they cut their records with Atlantic Records' house engineer Tom Dowd and producer Felix Pappalardi.
The Beatles were by now no longer touring, and Epstein was tiring of the demands of his ever-expanding business. He was keen to reduce his involvement in NEMS Enterprises, the company he had founded inso he decided to strike a deal with Stigwood. There had been numerous other offers made for NEMS over the previous couple of years and Epstein is reported to have turned down more than one multimillion-dollar offer Back to Beijing - 루카스 - Train Ride Thoughts American interests, so it is unlikely that he chose to become a partner with Stigwood simply for financial reasons.
Alastair Taylor is reported to have exclaimed "You must be joking! Epstein was also considering handing over his role as manager of the Beatles, but when the Fab Four learned of this they were outraged.
They evidently disliked Stigwood intensely. We will record God Save the Queen for every single record we make from now on and we'll sing it out of tune. That's a promise. So if this guy buys us, that's what he's buying. The company had expanded rapidly growing from fifteen staff in to eighty in According to Gunby: " His autocratic style would be a time bomb ticking beneath people who had stuck by Epstein through thick and thin.
Taylor remained unconvinced—Stigwood, he said, had "a ruthless reputation, a cavalier style that upset more people than it pleased. It is claimed that Epstein subsequently decided that he didn't want Stigwood in the company. Unknown to them, Ronald Rennie had already heard their only Australian hit, "Spicks and Specks", thanks to the band's publisher, so Rennie had made arrangements with their Australian label, Festival, to release it in the UK.
RSO's transition "from rock management concern to multimedia entertainment empire" began after Stigwood saw the Broadway production of the pioneering rock musical Hair. He decided to stage it in London, and it ran for more than five years in the West End.
He followed this with many other highly successful productions: Oh! Later Stigwood produced stage versions of his other successful film musicals, Saturday Night Fever and Grease. By this time the fortunes of his pop production enterprises had declined greatly, and both his major acts struggled to regain their former glory. The Bee Gees broke up briefly inand after reuniting they floundered for several years, reaching a self-acknowledged "rock bottom" period in the early s, by which time the former chart toppers had been reduced to playing the working men's club circuit in the north of England.
They recorded an ambitious double-album with considerable input from Duane Allman, whom Clapton met and befriended. These tragedies, combined with the angst of his unrequited love for Patti Boyd, sent Clapton into a downward spiral of depression and drug abuse. Fortunately, Clapton eventually kicked his habit, and Stigwood took him back to Miami, where he recorded his very successful comeback album Ocean Boulevardwhich included his US 1 hit version of Bob Marley's "I Shot The Sheriff".
His first feature was a hit screen adaptation of Jesus Christ Superstarmade in association with its director, Norman Jewison. He followed this with the film version of the Who's Tommywhich became one of the most successful films at the box office in its year of release. The film also launched TV actor John Travolta to international stardom.
The 2-LP soundtrack album, written by and featuring the Bee Gees, became the biggest selling soundtrack album ever released. The group reportedly wrote the songs 'to order' without having seen the film, and according to Frank Rose's Rolling Stone article about the Bee Gees, at least four of the songs — including "Stayin' Alive" — were written in just one week. Stigwood followed this with another hugely successful film adaptation of one of his stage productions, the rock'n'roll musical GreaseA Mix - The Proclaimers - Like Comedy: Hmv Scottish Exclusive: Deluxe Edition co-starred Travolta and Australian singer Olivia Newton-John, which featured additional material by expatriate Australian songwriter-producer John Farrar.
Moment by Moment alsowhich co-starred Travolta and Lily Tomlin was panned by critics, and is credited with turning Travolta into 'box office poison'. Five years later Travolta again displayed his now-legendary inability to pick roles when he agreed to appear in Stigwood's ill-advised sequel to Saturday Night FeverStaying Alive, directed by Sylvester Stallone.
The movie was a moderate success but did nothing to restart Travolta's stalled career. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band also A Mix - The Proclaimers - Like Comedy: Hmv Scottish Exclusive: Deluxe Edition fantasy adventure showcasing the songs of the Beatles, it starred two of the hottest rock acts of the period, Peter Frampton and the Bee Gees, plus a long list of rock and film greats in cameos.
Unfortunately, problems surfaced early in the schedule A Mix - The Proclaimers - Like Comedy: Hmv Scottish Exclusive: Deluxe Edition grew steadily worse — Stigwood sacked original director Chris Bearde before shooting began and the Bee Gees were soon begging to be removed from the project, to no avail.
Although the new director, Michael Schultz Car Wash did a valiant job, the film turned out to be a disastrous flop. Stigwood wanted to remove dialogue scenes to include more music, so that the soundtrack could be expanded to a double album, but director Allan Moyle refused to make the cuts, so Stigwood fired Moyle who didn't make another film for ten years and made Its Getting Better - Various - Music For Pleasure cuts himself.
Star Robin Johnson later said of the result: "It was disappointing. It could've been so much more powerful. I'd love to see what Allan's cut would've been. The music soundtrack became a cult favourite due to the inclusion of many significant new wave acts — Patti Smith, the Pretenders, Talking Heads and Roxy Music — and it also became a collector's item for fans of English band Cleveland - Layzie Bone - Cleveland because their track "Take This Town", written especially for the film, was for many years only available on the soundtrack LP until the release of Rag and Bone Buffet: Rare Cuts and Leftovers in The program, which aired on the ABC network in the United States, featured three teams of players from small towns in a competition where the emphasis was on good will.
The show lasted four seasons. It is believed the cause was a heart attack or stroke. He released 23 singles and seven albums between and He was married four times and had eight children. He died at his home in Phoenix, Arizona, at age He was raised on a farm in Magnolia, Arkansas, but by his early twenties was working in a box factory in Beaumont, Texas.
