  • Antioch
    Antakya? Never heard of it before the recent earthquake that devastated SW turkey and NW Syria. Oh you mean Antioch? Heard of that. Dates back over 2000 years. The Greeks, Romans, the Crusades – very well documented. Why do we who speak English call Antioch by its … Read more
  • How soon we forget
    This evening I had the misfortune of flipping across my TV channels and came across an interview between Tulsi Gabbard and Tucker Carlson on FOX which sounded remarkably like what was being said about Winston Churchill when he was warning the world about Hitlers true intentions. People … Read more
  • Moldova
    The Russian play book is at work now in Moldova. Russian operatives are stirring up descent and pro Russian propaganda against the current government that is pro Western and has applied to join the European Union. There is already a break away pro Russian region on the … Read more
  • A relief!
    For those of us that were thinking that the Fox “News” hosts could not really be believing all the nonsense from the Trump camp about stolen elections etc, it was a great relief to hear that they do NOT believe those wild ideas. In fact they thought … Read more
  • Roger Waters and Ukraine
    Russia has been trying to justify its invasion of Ukraine by pretending that it is still a superpower with a “natural” sphere of influence which it claims Ukraine is within. However, if Russia is a superpower so is Great Britain and France who also have nuclear weapons … Read more
  • Turkey
    For all the complaints about the “over reach” of government as it relates to regulations, when we see the devastation in Turkey we should realize all those building regulations, building codes and restrictions all have a reason. If a 7.8 earthquake happened in LA, there would of … Read more
  • The friends you keep
    For all the talk by Putin and his spokesmen that Russia is going to win the war in Ukraine, the penny has still not dropped that the West cannot afford to let him win so he is destined to fail. No wonder he wears bullet proof vests … Read more
  • Tom Verlaine
    Tom Verlaine of the NY band Television died last week at the age of 73. I had not seen Tom for many years but remember well when I organized the band’s May 1977 tour of the UK. It was my idea to add Blondie as the opening … Read more
  • Goo Goo Muck!
    Better Late Than Never. Glad to see The Cramps song Goo Goo Muck is getting the attention it deserves. Ivy does the guitar so hopefully she has heard about the current notoriety. Too bad Lux is no longer with us. Always a killer band and a proud … Read more
  • End Game
    US TV shows give a lot of coverage to Ukraine even as the disclosures of the June 6th committee keep coming. Some commentators mention the idea of an eventual negotiation. I heard several say “every war ends in negotiation”. Funny, I must have missed those. World War … Read more

Miles Axe Copeland III is an articulate and charismatic businessman, entrepreneur and influencer, with a track record of being at the forefront of innovation in the music and entertainment industries. His constant focus on evolution and revolution is dominant throughout his varied and successful career, which spans five decades and is littered with household names.

From being at the centre of the British ‘progressive rock’ and ‘punk rock’ scenes in the late sixties and seventies, to launching record labels and managing hugely successful bands and musicians such as The Police, Sting, Squeeze, REM and The Bangles, Miles spent over thirty years working with artists who dominated the charts in the US, the UK and across the world.

His inspiring ability to manage and grow talent, identify and influence changes in the market, and develop highly creative and innovative promotional strategies has resulted in countless hit singles and albums, Grammy Awards, and Gold and Platinum records, as well as some surprising but hugely successful collaborations. Meanwhile, his latest series of live touring projects has focused on creating a brand that can operate successfully with whatever artists might be available at any given time, creating both ownership and longevity for each concept.

Miles’ entrepreneurial approach has enabled him to find solutions when routes to market were closed, or evolve his business model when the internet fundamentally changed the industry. His experience and vision have led to numerous speaking engagements for companies including Motorola, HSBC Bank, Vanderbilt University, The University of California, The Grammy Organization and a host of music associated media.

Miles spent his childhood and adolescence moving between the US, Syria, Egypt and Lebanon. His mother worked for British intelligence and his father was in US Army counter intelligence as well as being a founder member of the CIA. Miles’ cultural awareness and global outlook have been a common theme throughout his career, which has included boosting the popularity of Arab music and dance in the US, as well as advising the Pentagon on how to ‘win hearts and minds’ following the invasion of Iraq.
