‘Tom’ Mooney Dies

Industry vet Michael T. "Tom" Mooney, 64, died from a heart attack at his home in Sherman Oaks, Calif., June 15th.

Mooney was an exec at Ticketmaster, working there since the days Fred Rosen ran the company, and had worked in the concert business since 1974 when he was hired by Bill Graham as an employee of FM Productions.

Mooney was a road crew member of the Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young tour at the time, and became tour manager for Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Luis Miguel, Rod Stewart and others.

He was best known for his association with Neil Diamond as road manager and "personal confidante," according to a statement.

Mooney was said to be looking forward to seeing Diamond perform in Boston later this year at the singer’s personal invitation.
