To call Simon Napier-Bell a pioneer in the music industry seems like an understatement.
Simon is the former manager of Marc Bolan, Wham!, Candi Staton, Japan, Ultravox and many more and spent 18 months in the early 80’s paving a brand new pathway. His end goal was to bring Wham! in as the very first Western artist to ever play in communist China. His story is captivating, inspirational and a tell-all about the ways professionals of the young Asia-Pacific industry must push forward.
