Promoter
    (January 29, 1944- )
    Born in London, United Kingdom
    Managed and produced the Rolling Stones (1963-67)
    Founded Intermediate Records (1965)
    Recorded the Small Faces, the Nice, P.P. Arnold and Chris Farlowe
    Wrote the autobiographies 'Stoned' (1998) and '2Stoned' (2001)
    Hosts 'Everybody Must Get Stoned' on Sirius Satelite Radio
    As a teenager, he spent summers hustling tourists in resort towns.
    The Rolling Stones' website claims, 'Accounts of his musical input to the Stones' recordings vary, from negligible to absolute zero.'
    He discouraged the Stones from covering blues songs, saying 'The teenage population of the British Isles could not be expected to relate to the needs and wants of middle-aged blacks.'
    His relationship with the Stones became strained due to his drug use and erratic behavior. (Just imagine how much drug usage it must have required to alienate, say, Keith Richards.)
    He said that he almost died from drug overdoses three times.
    He said, 'The toilet scene in 'Trainspotting' had me forget I was watching a movie and wonder how they knew so much about me.'
    He finally kicked drugs by turning to Scientology.
    His father was an Air Force pilot who died when his plane was shot down six months before Andrew's birth.
    Before hooking up with the Stones, he had brief stints publicizing the Beatles and Bob Dylan's first appearance in Britain.
    He got media attention for the Stones by promoting them as anti-Beatle 'bad boys.'
    He locked Mick and Keith in a kitchen until they wrote their first song.
    He discovered singer Marianne Faithful.
    When asked if he knew that Scientology is brainwashing, he quipped 'I hope so. My brain really needs a spring clean.'
