“You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life. ” -Albert Camus
Simon Cowell is insanely creative! Don’t you love to watch shows like American Idol or America’s Got Talent? Those star-maker shows are created by this British-guy who loves to give spicy comments. Simon Phillip Cowell (born October 7, 1959) is an English artist-and-repertoire (“A&R”) executive and television personality/producer, best known as a judge on such TV shows as Pop Idol, American Idol, The X Factor, and Britain’s Got Talent. He is also the owner of the television production and music publishing house Syco.
His father’s connections originally got him rehired as the assistant to an A&R man. From there onwards, Simon worked his way up and eventually got promoted to a music publishing position but left during the early 1980s to form E&S Music with his boss at EMI, Ellis Rich (later Chairman of the Performing Right Society). The company had several hit records at one point with five singles in the UK top 40. The offices were in a converted gentleman’s washroom in the NCP car park on Brewer Street in London’s Soho district. Simon left by mutual agreement a few years later! Two thumbs up for this entertainment genius!
