With a heavy heart we say goodbye to Lou Blair, a great friend and mentor. He was our manager for many years, and his never diminishing support, always pushing us to reach further in our music, will never be forgotten.
Lou was a Big Man with an even BIGGER Heart!
We will always remember him and his passion for music from the beginning of Loverboy, especially in those early days as we rehearsed, wrote and recorded all our early songs, to the many great world wide tours we were on from 1979 through 1989 – Japan, Spain, France, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Scandinavia, Great Britain, Canada and the United States.
Lou was instrumental in getting us together and then taking our demoes to Bruce Allen. He was always so involved with our record company (in those days CBS worldwide), taking them to task, making “damn sure” they were promoting Loverboy to the best of their abilities.
Lou Blair and Bruce Allen were an improbable, unstoppable, management team that took no prisoners in an unruly music business on the band’s behalf that solidified the group’s success for decades to come.
Lou will be missed by so many people in and out of the music business.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends at this difficult time.
