MORRIS TO KEYNOTE MIDEM 2015

Doug Morris will be the keynote speaker at MIDEM next weekend in Cannes. The subject will be “Lessons Learned.”

Tim Ingham’s Music Business Worldwide, which will cover the confab, notes that Sony Music CEO “Morris is a genuine label legend. A former CEO of Universal Music Group—where he mentored a certain Lucian Grainge—he’s also been head of MCA Music Entertainment, Warner Music U.S. and the Atlantic Records Group. On Sunday (June 7), he’ll tell us what a lifetime in the industry has taught him.”

Speaking of Morris' history, he figures in our recent tale of the Record Men who built the modern biz; check it out.
