“Call again tomorrow, we’ve forgotten what your name is. Gotta make a dollar when you’re Takin’ Care Of Business.” (Billy Rankin, 1984)
As previously touched upon, Jim White had me by the balls in all of my musical endeavours. As an artist through his I-Rate Management company, as a songwriter via his Money For Music company and, as a recording musician, with Jim White Ltd. I couldn’t fart, or even write about a fart, without his involvement. He was, he reminded me often, “Paying your bloody wages” and I had to agree though I reminded him often, “From all the bloody money you got from signing me to A&M and Almo Irving.” He had to agree likewise.
