Artist & Manager Awards

Queen manager Jim Beach is to receive the Peter Grant Award for being dead good at managing bands for a long time at this year’s Artist & Manager Awards.

Jon Webster, CEO of the Music Managers Forum, which co-organises the awards, says: “Queen are into their fifth decade and are currently enthralling audiences on a European tour. Jim Beach has been at their side advising, protecting and guiding throughout their ascent of so many pinnacles in their live and recorded career”.

Beach has managed the band since 1975, giving up a career in law to do so. Luckily, that decision turned out alright. He will be in attendance to pick up his prize at the ceremony on 26 Mar at The Troxy in London.
