Andrew Loog Oldham, 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee

Andrew Loog Oldham

It's not an overstatement to say that Andrew Loog Oldham held the future of rock in his hands.

He did PR for the Beatles, managed the Rolling Stones and produced such hits as "Paint It Black," "Get Off My Cloud" and "I Can't Get No Satisfaction".

In 1965, Tom Wolfe famously dubbed Phil Spector America’s first "Tycoon of Teen". Great Britain in the 1960s had its own version with Andrew Loog Oldham. Similarly eccentric, Oldham sported a one-of-a-kind mix of flamboyance, fashion, attitude, chutzpah, vision and business smarts. As co-manager of the Rolling Stones from May 1963 to September 1970, and founder and co-owner of Immediate Records from 1965 to 1970, he helped shaped the future of rock, and certainly turned the music industry in the United Kingdom on its head.
