When Andrew Loog Oldham was 19 years old, he began managing a young band in London who played rhythm & blues cover songs. He helped turn them into the Rolling Stones, the band that rose to the top as the anti-Beatles, exploding the social norms of the time in the early 1960s and paving the way for an entire music industry's culture of sex, drugs & rock 'n roll.

Biography
In April, Oldham will be inducted (along with KISS, Nirvana, Brian Epstein and others) into the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame. It's not only in recognition of his work with the Stones, but also an entire generation of iconic artists in rock music. Oldham got his start working for fashion designer Mary Quant, and then Beatles manager Brian Epstein hired him as a publicity man to help break the Beatles. Looking for other musical talent in '60s London, Oldham soon found the band that would become the Rolling Stones, and he guided their careers to global stardom. After stepping down as the Stones' manager in 1967, Oldham's U.K.--based record label, Immediate Records, was one of the coolest of the '60s, and he signed or produced recordings by Small Faces, Rod Stewart, John Mayall, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton, among others.

Oldham continued to produce records throughout the 1970s and '80s, and later authored an acclaimed two-volume autobiography that stands among the most fantastically vivid firsthand accounts of the 1960s.

He made Colombia his primary residence in the mid-80s after marrying Esther Farfan, a Colombian model.

Oldham can currently be heard on Sirius satellite radio, hosting the Underground Garage program.

His Berlin School ties run deep, as his son Max is currently a participant in the school's Executive MBA program.
