the Man Behind Pink Floyd, T. Rex, The Jam and George Michael
in stores 3/20

VIA PRESS RELEASE | A candid and outspoken memoir, Have a Cigar! takes music fans behind the scenes of rock ’n’ roll’s golden age.

In 2008, the music industry lost one its most beloved and influential icons. Bryan Morrison passed away following two years in a coma, but the publisher, manager and agent left the world with one final, unexpected gift: a candid, forthright memoir of a remarkable life. In Have a Cigar! The Memoir of the Man Behind Pink Floyd, T.Rex, The Jam and George Michael (Quiller Publishing, March 2020), Morrison shares tales of a unique life in the worlds of rock ‘n’ roll, fashion, design and polo.

Morrison began his career in music managing the Pretty Things, eventually expanding to represent superstar groups including Pink Floyd, T. Rex, The Jam, and Wham! This engaging memoir reveals anecdotes from life on tour in rock’s heyday, including the stories behind Syd Barrett biting his finger down to the bone, why the Pretty Things received a lifelong ban from New Zealand, how The Jam kissed success in the United States goodbye, and why Morrison received death threats when Robin Gibb left the Bee Gees. Have a Cigar! transports readers to a beloved era of rock, bringing value to music fans of any generation.

Bryan Morrison studied art and design at St Martin’s and the Central School of Art in the early 1960s before leaving to manage R&B group the Pretty Things. Within five years, the Bryan Morrison Agency grew to be one of the leading pop music agents in London. Morrison became the manager of Pink Floyd and through his publishing company would represent Marc Bolan of T. Rex, Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees, Paul Weller of the Jam, George Michael, and many others. Morrison took up polo and in 1985 he opened the Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club. In 2006 Bryan Morrison suffered a serious polo accident which left him in a coma. He died in 2008.
