Paul had a master plan to build up Lynne Franks PR so that we could sell it to a larger agency. He explained that the only way we’d make capital would be to take advantage of the eighties madness when service businesses would buy smaller ones for vast amounts of money and let the principals retire after a suitable time lag. I was reluctant at first because I was so locked into being a workaholic that I couldn’t see any other way of living. But finally Paul convinced me and deals started coming our way.
Celebrity endorsement started attracting sponsors, becoming part of a new area of cause-related marketing. One of the first high profile events along these lines was Reebok’s sponsorship of the Amnesty International Human Rights world tour in the autumn of 1988 which starred Sting, Bruce Springsteen and Peter Gabriel.

We’d visit friends and in between lines of coke would spend most of the night rolling joints, drinking wine and talking fifteen to the dozen with none of us listening to each other.
