RIP Robin Leach (1941-2018)

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/robin-leach-dead-lifestyles-rich-famous-host-dies-1137244

How many famous musicians were featured on the Lifestyles show? Was Mike an anomaly or more of a regular, normal guest? I was never a regular viewer. I wonder if Mike contacted Robin, or if Robin contacted Mike. How did this famous appearance of Mike's come about?

I don't want to click on the interview if it's the one with Mike in the hot tub.

The YouTube clip isnít the late Robin Leachís only connection to the guys.

From 1966 until 1968 Leach was the editor and publisher of a weekly magazine called Go. It had the same size and newsprint as a tabloid newspaper and came out every week, free of charge and ad-supported. I think each issue had 16 pages. 12 of these were the same across the country. The four pages in the middle were assembled by each radio station that circulated the magazine in local markets. I think Iíve read there were 30 or 35 of these; WMCA distributed the magazine
in the NYC area for instance.

Leach apparently used the KRLA Beat mag in LA as his model though he certainly would have had NME and Melody Maker in his native land in mind. Go filled the gap between the teen magazines and the industry mags like Cash Box and Billboard; when it began Rolling Stone was a year in the future and Crawdaddy was still being mimeographed, I think.

Brian did at least one interview with Go in 1966; itís quoted in Dominic Prioreís first book on Smile. There may have been other articles in Go about him and the BBs but despite the fact that close to a hundred issues of the magazine were published and probably close to a hundred thousand copies were circulated per week, itís pretty scarce now - though usually ebay has five or six copies being offered.

Mike's Hawaiian property looks like it was pretty spectacular. Was the pond with waterfall actually on his estate or someplace close by?

Don't blame you in the least. One of the most pathetic, conceited examples of self aggrandizement that exists. A poster boy for self centeredness who has absolutely no control over the ego that consumes his entire being. Money aside, it is amazing that anyone in their right mind would want to be anywhere near or associated with this self absorbed abysmal clown. Evil
