Along with all the music festival and all the industry-related events, Canadian Music Week also stages a film festival featuring a variety of movies and documentaries.
Two years ago this month, I started work as story editor on a documentary about Arthur Fogel, the Canadian who has worked his way up to being the CEO of Global Touring and Chairman of Global Music Live Nation.
Starting as a security dude at a Toronto club called The Edge and later as the manager of Martha and the Muffins, Arthur has turned into one of the most powerful people in music.
How powerful? He organized the 360 Tour for U2. He engineered the it-can't-be-done Police reunion tour. He's behind mega-tours for Madonna and Lady Gaga. He's worked with everyone from Bowie to Neil Young to Depeche Mode.
Chances are, then, you've been to an Arthur Fogel show but didn't know it.
