"Jim's ability to be creative and take risks is a good match for my music."


O.C. Manager Officially Takes On PoMo Icon
As expected—and as trumpeted in our rumor mill last week—manager Jim Guerinot has inked PoMo fave Beck to his Rebel Waltz stable.

He's expected to handle Beck's career when his golf game permits.

"It is truly an honor for everyone at our company to be involved with Beck," Guerinot shouted from the water hazard at Strawberry Farms. "He is an incredibly unique talent that applies his diversity and broad musical palette towards setting the bar for the music community."

"Jim's ability to be creative and take risks is a good match for my music," reads a quote approved by Beck. "We have some interesting things planned. Plus, this is my chance for a dope Titleist endorsement deal."

Guerinot's Laguna Beach, CA-based company also manages such rock luminaries as Chris Cornell, No Doubt, Offspring and Social Distortion.

Beck kicks off a European festival tour on June 23 in Dublin, Ireland, hitting stops in England, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland and other territories before winding up in Jerez, Spain on July 14.
