Murdoch Makes Concert News

Two worlds collide: believe it or not, yes, there is a connection between the News of the World controversy and the concert business.

Rupert Murdoch and son James, chairman of News International, testified before Members of Parliament today, July 19, and the last to question them was Louise Mensch, formerly Louise Bagshawe.

The conservative MP and author changed her name recently when she married Peter Mensch in a secret ceremony during parliamentary break.

Mensch, of course, is co-president along with Cliff Burnstein of Q Prime – management company for Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Josh Groban and Muse, among others
