COLIN McCLELLAND

Born 1944, Belfast. Formerly a library assistant, Colin came into the pop business after a year working for Arnie Knowles at Belfast's Marquee Club (1967-68).

Was manager of The Group from around 1968 to 1969, when Chips was formed. Remained as manager of Chips until approximately 1973.

Briefly managed Dunno. After his stint with the bands, he went into journalism, and has been living and working in Dublin since 1978.

Went briefly back to the music business around 1977, when he co-managed the Belfast punk band Stiff Little Fingers for a year, leaving only after the band signed their record deal with Chrysalis (something he never managed to achieve with Chips).

Colin retired from newspapers on his 50th birthday, but still fiddles about in journalism, mainly in the field of equestrian sport.

Bono says he knows him, but Colin cannot remember ever meeting Bono.
