Music manager Mick Brigden, who has worked with The Rolling Stones and Bob
Dylan, has passed away aged 73.
Guitarist, Joe Satriani, who Brigden also managed, confirmed the news on his
website: “It is with tremendous sadness that we confirm the passing of artist
manager, and former Bill Graham protégé, Mick Brigden
when he suffered an accident and was rushed to hospital where he died.
It is unclear exactly what caused his death. Satriani and Brigden began
working together in 1988.
Paying tribute Satriani said: “Mick Brigden was a force to reckon with. He was just
such an original.”
Satriani added: “I hesitate to say he was an old school rock ‘n’ roll manager because
it doesn’t do him justice.
“He put an emphasis on doing things right and doing right by people.”
Brigden’s wife of 34 years, Julia Dreyer Brigden, said: “He was so organized. That’s
why he was so good at his job.
“When you arrived at the hotel, the cars were waiting and the venues were set up.”
