Terrible news from Spain of the death of Simone Bosé, head of Universal Music on the Iberian peninsula. Simone had a meteoric career at Mercury and EMI, switching back to Universal just before the British label was sold last year to Warner.
Well liked and open minded, his artists included Mariza and the chart-topping Pablo Alboran. Simone died of post-pneumonia complications.
Our sympathies to his family.
