Would it be Rod Smallwood? Peter Grant? Doc Mehgee(sic)? Who and why?

I was going to say Tim Collins, except he tried to fuck over Aero just before Nine Lives. Maybe Bill Aucoin for successfully surviving having to put up with Paul and Gene?

One of the best: Shep Gordon - Alice Cooper

Shep saw that the mass-circulation general press would print anything about a rock and roll group if it was sufficiently disgusting. And if the news making actions were offensive enough then it did not matter if the group’s members were really legitimate stars.

Shep’s theory was that instead of getting negative items printed about prominent stars, he figured he could take a group of complete unknowns, and make them stars by virtue of their adverse publicity.
