Friends and colleagues offer THR insight into the latest inductee to the Hollywood Walk of Fame


 

Ken Warwick
Executive producer, American Idol
"When I first met him in 2001, he was exactly what I expected him to be. He had a fabulous office on the river in London, in Fulham. He looked every bit the wealthy musical entrepreneur. He was a little bit younger than I expected, to be truthful. He was a very nice man, very reasonable, obviously very intelligent. I can honestly say that I've never had an argument with him since Day 1, and that was 10 years ago."

Rob Stringer
Chairman and CEO of Columbia/Epic Label Group
"I first met Simon 23 years ago. Even way back then it was clear that he had a well-rounded vision of the whole business as he managed artists, producers and writers at a very young age. He was ahead of his time then and subsequently built his company from those early multidimensional foundations into what it is today."
