Veteran music promoter Harvey Goldsmith, who put on the legendary Live Aid concert in 1985 is eyeing up his next opportunity – becoming Mayor of London.
Famed for his massive productions and working with artists including The Who, Alice Cooper, Barbra Streisand and Mariah Carey during the 60, 70s, 80s and 90s, 60-year-old Goldsmith is passionate about the city he grew up in and what it needs from a Mayor.
“He needs to be a supporter of London and every community in London, and to make London a better place,” Goldsmith told the Jewish Chronicle.
“Would I like to stand for Mayor? I would love to,” he added.
But don’t expect him to put himself up for Mayor at the next elections in 2008.
He says he is too busy building up his business again following his fall into bankruptcy in the late 1990s after extending himself too much.
“Do I have the time? Not at the moment. Would I like to think about it in the future? Yes?”
Meanwhile, earlier in the week, Goldsmith received a Music Industry Trusts’ award for his services to the business which he adds to other honours including his 1996 CBE from The Queen.
