In that sense, it’s somewhat more difficult to feel very sorry for Tony since he chose this position, knowing full well that he would be lying or at least twisting the truth to fit the policy at every turn and in every interview.
In this case, Tony opted and chose to have the visibility and prestige of the position and, in turn, sacrificed his life for it essentially.
Tony is evidence of how perfectly this mind-body connection works…unfortunately, he’s the “negative example” of the process.
TonyClarke was, for much of the late '60s and early '70s, one of the three or four most well-known record producers in England, as familiar a name as George Martin was for his work with the Beatles, and Andrew Oldham and Jimmy Miller, respectively, were for their work with the Rolling Stones.
Clarke was almost too good at his job--he tried to get King Crimson signed to the band's company in 1969, but the proposal was rejected (in part, it is said, because the Moody Blues were intimidated by the musicianship of the other group).
Clarke ended up representing the group in their dealings with the label, and was particularly instrumental in getting the new Threshold Studio built to their specifications.
