New look Maverick gives Live Nation a management powerhouse
Guy Oseary has unveiled the new Maverick, giving Live Nation a major presence in band management - by tying up with eight other top artist managers to partner with Live Nation and potentially reinvent the music industry with a stable that includes superstar acts like Madonna, U2 and Alicia Keys -- not to mention a tech fund with Ashton Kutcher and billionaire Ron Burkle. Joining Oseary are Laffitte Management's Ron Laffitte, I Am Other's Caron Veazey, Blueprint Group's Gee Roberson and Cortez Bryant, Reign Deer's Larry Rudolph and Adam Leber, Quest Management's Scott Rodger and Spalding Entertainment's Clarence Spalding. Collectively, they manage more than two dozen of the planet's biggest artists.
