In the next installment of our video interview series, Pollstar’s European correspondent sits down with Spanish promoter legend Gay Mercader.

The list of acts Mercader brought to Spain is too long to spell in full. It includes The Rolling StonesEric ClaptonStingPhil CollinsNeil YoungStevie Wonder, Leonard Cohen, Pearl Jam, Michael Jackson, Bruce SpringsteenAC/DCAerosmithElton JohnBob Dylan, Bob Marley, Patti Smith, Queen, Tom JonesSantanaDiana RossMetallica and many more.

Mercader is slowly but surely retiring, though he still promotes shows when asked. So this three-part interview series is the closest thing to his autobiography until he decides to write the real thing.
