Subject: Former Beatles and Stones Mgr, Allen Klein, dies.

Written By: Frank on 07/04/09 at 7:18 pm

Record label executive Allen Klein, who once managed the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, has died at age 77.

Bob Merlis, a publicist for Klein's company, ABKCO Music & Records, said Saturday the music mogul died of Alzheimer's disease in his New York City home.

Klein was one of the influential figures in the world of music in the 1960s.

Known for his business acumen — for example claiming royalties for artists — he managed a high performing stable of talent that included Bobby Darin, Connie Francis, Herman's Hermits and Sam Cooke.

His music company also produced the music of the Animals, Bobby Womack, Marianne Faithfull, Chubby Checker and the Kinks.

He is perhaps most famous for signing the Stones and then the Beatles. Both agreements, however, would end in acrimony and lawsuits.
