So many artists reach that stage in their careers (usually while they’re still amateur) at which either their egos or the level of activity they have reached tell them they need, or think they need, a manager. And usually the first person 32 Artist management 33 they approach is a brother, a sister, or a close friend of the band. Quite what is going through their minds when they make such a proposition is difficult to say. In some cases it’s simply that they feel that there’s a certain prestige attached to having a manager; in other cases it’s simply that they don’t want the responsibility of organizing things any more, and would prefer to be getting on with the ‘serious, creative’ business of writing and performing.
