Andrew Miller: Tributes paid to Knebworth 90 promoter

Tributes have been paid to a Shropshire-born music industry executive who helped raise millions of pounds for charities.

Andrew Miller, who died on Thursday aged 65, brought together the likes of Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton and Pink Floyd for the Knebworth 90 concert.

The event raised millions for charities including the Brit School and Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy.

It also helped fund the building of the Brit School in Croydon.

Mr Miller, born in Shrewsbury, worked as a promoter for artists such as Meatloaf, Barry Manilow, Chris de Burgh and Captain Sensible.

His links with the Nordoff Robbins music therapy charity date back to 1976.

A tribute on the organisation's website said Miller "earned the gratitude of many" for his "tireless work" for the charity.

Mr Miller leaves a wife and two daughters.
