The Rolling Stones’ former manager and financial advisor, Prince Rupert Loewenstein, died peacefully early Tuesday (May 20th) after a battle with a long illness. He was 80.
He was born in Majorca in 1933 to Prince Leopold of the royal house of Wittelsbach, and was educated in England.
He worked for the Stones from the late sixties until 2007.
It was Loewenstein’s advice in the early 1970s that prompted the band to move from the UK to the south of France, saveing millions while becoming Britain’s first musical tax exiles.
His funeral will be held on Friday (May 30) in London.
