On the occasion of Bruce Allen’s birthday, I thought I’d sit down for an early morning Zoom call.
Bruce has a roster of talent that plays the World’s stages, so you can find him at 8 am just finishing a call to South Africa.
He’s a full-speed guy. Never outworked, no matter what the project.
In over 50 years Bruce has become one of the best artist managers in the entire music business. Bruce Allen Talent.
After a start with BTO, Bruce decided to take a chance on a young singer/songwriter Bryan Adams. They agreed to be a team with a handshake and started to make music history.
His roster now includes legend Anne Murray, Michael Bublé (there’s a story), Jann Arden, mega-producer Bob Rock and his first band in a while The Offspring.
In the 23 minutes that I have his attention, Bruce tells tales about
The state of the current music business..
The loss of Gordon Lightfoot
Bryan Adams – his place today
Jann – she’s busy Mully
Michael Bublé – we trade Bublé stories. Love it
Bob Rock and Gord Downie – amazing story
The Offspring – first band he’s signed in years.
The Loss of our dear friend – Red Robinson DJ Legend.
Enjoy Big Bad Bruce. Next Week and very special feature on the early rock life of Red Robinson. His last two interviews.
