Does anyone know who Paul Prenter was, in the history of Queen?

I recently uncovered a collectible item with his name on it and trying to figure out who he was?!

Their need was in good manager and lawyer, not in Brad Pitt nor David Beckham, you know...

Wow - thanks for the info folks.

The reason I asked is that I have a silver disc award from Warner-Pioneer Japan that says:

"Warner-Pioneer Japan Congratulates Paul Prenter on the superlative single 'Crazy little thing called love' - 1981"

I don't think the man with those giant glasses were Paul Prenter. Paul Prenter didn't have glasses I thought. Kurt Raab had the big glasses, right? (Rebecca)

Anyway, here is Paul Prenter's photo.

He died of aids in 1991 aswell,in august I think. He and freddie didn't get on anymore at the end of the eighties because
prenter told the press freddie had aids.Of course,freddie was angry as can be about this.

He not only told the press, he sold the story for 32,000 pounds. I'd have been pissed off too.

He was first a hanger on to Freddie and then became his personal manager but really his job was to pick out men for Freddie. He was a real nasty bugger and not many of Freddie friends really liked or trusted him. Eventually he sold his story to the Sun and Freddie refused to speak to him. I certainly cannot blame him.

He died before Freddie in 1991.
