Peter Grosslight RIP

PETER GROSSLIGHT, WME's head of global music and renowned music agent, died at his Bel-Air home on Thursday after a struggle with pancreatic cancer; he was 68. Grosslight, an object of respect and affection across the industry and universally described as a true gentleman, served such clients as The Eagles, Whitney Houston, Tom Petty, Journey, Carly Simon and Luis Miguel during his two decades at the agency. He also played a major role in WME business ventures, including its participation in Lollapalooza. He launched his own Regency Artists agency in 1974, with clients in music, film and TV and where he organized highly successful TV specials for clients such as Tina Turner and Roy Orbison; the firm became Triad Artists and was acquired by William Morris in 1992. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations be made in Grosslight's memory to pancreatic-cancer research nonprofit The Lustgarten Foundation, for which he helped organize a major benefit earlier this year.
