Congrats to Irving Azoff. The famed manager of the Eagles and founder of Front Line Management is receiving the special NARAS award for music icons this February at Clive Davis’s pre Grammy gala.
Azoff is literally a living legend in the music business. In addition to the Eagles he’s guided everyone from Fleetwood Mac to Steely Dan to Bon Jovi. His first client was the late, beloved Dan Fogelberg.
Nowadays Azoff is chairman and CEO of Azoff MSG Entertainment, a new venture with The Madison Square Garden Company. He’s a mensch and a loyal friend to people who’ve come through the industry with him. Clive’s party is really going to swing with Azoff as honoree. Neal Portnow and Clive made an excellent choice.
PS Among the things I love about Irving Azoff is that he drove Jann Wenner crazy in the 70s and 80s!
