Billy Frances

Very sad to hear that we just lost another legendary music stalwart, Sting’s tour manager for over 40 years, Billy Frances, who also took on a couple of tours for me.

He was a wonderful and generous gentle giant always looking out for his artists and for an opportunity for a little mischief, of which he was a master.

He brightened up many of the tours we did together, always professional, competitive and playful.

All tough on the outside but soft as a puppy, when you got close.

He’ll be busy loading them into buses at the pearly gates.

We salute you Billy!

Bye – bye.
