Barbara Skydel RIP

Longtime booking agent Barbara Skydel passed away. She was beloved and a champion of the acts she represented. As Sebastian Bach said on this TwitLonger page, Over my 25 year career, Barbara was the only person who stuck with me through the whole thing, always believed In me, never left me. Until today. A very, very sad day. I loved you Barbara thanks for always being there for me & my family & fans. No one rocked harder than you. Skydel was an inspiration for women in the music business. She was the first female principal at a major agency. Among the many artists she represented were Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Who and The Clash.
