Enter the world of Jazz Summers, the music industry's most notorious manager. Be transported from the monsoon drains of sixties Boogie Street to the smoke-filled folk clubs of seventies New York. Be a soldier. Form a band. Smoke dope in Malacca. Go to meetings in the coke-sprinkled boardrooms of eighties Los Angeles. Manage Wham! Drink wine. Wear baggy suits. Eat at uptight banquets in pre-Tiananmen Beijing. Hear Punk's first screech. Drink heavily. Wear make-up. Go back to the year of Acid House and manage Yazz. Marry Yazz. Meet Roy Orbison. Outstare Puff Daddy. Lobby The Stones for "Bittersweet Symphony." Manage Snow Patrol, The Verve, La Roux. X-ray an Egyptian princess. Live.
