A SOUTHEND man who managed Madness and Van Morrison in the Eighties, has died.

John “Kellogs” Kalinowski, 66, who was also manager of Southend band Procol Harum, as well as working with the Kinks, died this week.

Popular in the Southend music circle, he was roadie and tour manager for the Paramounts, later Procol Harum, and contributed a bosun’s whistle to the group’s 1969 album, A Salty Dog, which reached number 27 in the UK charts.

He worked with Madness during their Eighties heyday as well as Van Morrison, before returning to manage Procol Harum in the Nineties.

In a distinguished career in the music industry, he worked for Shelter Records in the Seventies and Stiff Records as tour manager later that decade.
