The London Ear on RTÉ 2XM // Show 192 with Simon Napier-Bell

Today’s interview for The London Ear was definitely one off the bucket list as I had the opportunity to chat to Simon Napier-Bell. Simon has had a rather fantastic career in the music industry, managing acts like The Yardbirds, Japan, Marc Bolan and was the man responsible for bring Wham! to China.

Simon originally started out in the film industry and has recently returned to film making. He has directed a documentary which looks at the lives of the music artists in the infamous ’27 Club’. The film is called ’27 Gone Too Soon’ and I was delighted to get the chance to chat to Simon about it.

You can find out more about Simon on his website, on Facebook and on Twitter.
