Our frivolous squillionaires
From hagiography in the Times Sports section on concert promoter and Hollywood fixer Irving Azoff, who brought the Knicks owner James Dolan and coach Phil Jackson together, this little gem:
“[Dolan] would come to the concerts and say hello,” Azoff said. “In those days, he was much more focused on his guitar playing, and he was just starting to get serious with his music. Music is an amazing thing. I could give you the names of about 20 billionaire friends who care more about going to concerts than they do about their companies.”
Well, that explains a lot, if you think about it.
Not least that Azoff knows 20 billionaires. OK, 10, if he's pimping himself. But still.
