Management

Fish: Tall enough to manage himself!
From Col Tom Parker to Brian Epstein to Peter Grant talent managers have become as famous as their clients.  Some have gone through them like water (Yes come to mind) and others never say who takes care of them.  Fish (pictured) told me after falling out with Marillion manager John Arnison when Fish left the band in 1988 and later Yes, Asia and a-ha manager Brian Lane, the 6'4" Scotsman decided to manage his own career and has Kelvin "Yatta" Yates sort out the live side of things.  Steve Hacketts site said in an e-mail response he is now self-managed after firing longtime manager Billy Budis.  Elton John took his ex John Reid to court after discovering millions of pounds squandered.
