Add Fuller

THE SIMONIZING OF THE MUSIC BIZ: Idol is still owned by 19 Entertainment, which Fuller set up in the ’80s but subsequently sold to CKX. Said 19 Entertainment President Iain Pirie, “Simon’s vision in creating the show was to provide a launchpad for breaking new music talent. Two hundred and fifty million downloads later, his success in achieving that goal is completely evident.” (3/29a)
