Interviews with Two of the Biggest Promoters in the World

And they’re both Canadian.  Both interviews were conducted by veteran music journalist, Larry LeBlanc, at this year’s Canadian Music Week in Toronto.

The first is with Michael Cohl, the long-time Canadian promoter who saved the Rolling Stones from obscurity in the late 80s with the Steel Wheels Tour.

The second interview is with Arthur Fogel, the former manager of Martha and the Muffins who has ascended to the level of Global Touring for Live Nation.  He’s the guy that convinced the Police get back together and who helped conceive the massive 360 Tour for U2.

More video from CMW 2013 can be found on a dedicated YouTube channel.
