Andrew Loog Oldham, born January 29, 1944, is a record producer, artist manager, and author. He was the manager and producer of the Rolling Stones from 1963 to 1967. He is credited with creating strategies that lead to their success including positioning them with a “bad boy” image as a contrast to The Beatles’ image, encouraging Mick and Keith to start writing their own songs, encouraging them to retain ownership of their master tapes, and bringing John Lennon and Paul McCartney to the studio which led to the song “I Wanna Be Your Man” being their second single.
