David Enthoven was an interesting man. He discovered and/or managed King Crimson, Marc Bolan, Emerson, Lake and Palmer and Roxy Music.
In the early days their records were licensed to Island but in the 70s Enthoven, together with his partner John Gaydon, founded the great EG record label which became home to Eno, Crimson, Roxy and others.
After drug and drink problems Enthovan dropped out of sight in the mid-70s and EG was sold to Virgin. He re-emerged in the 80s as manager of, er, Robbie Williams.
David Enthoven died this week aged 72.
