Trinifold Management

Bill Curbishley is a music producer and band manager, best known for his work with English rock groups The Who, Judas Priest and Jimmy Page.

Curbishley "started his career in the music business at Track Records, managing" The Who and other artists such as Marc Bolan, Thunderclap Newman and The Crazy World of Arthur Brown. Curbishley produced The Who's film Tommy, the prison movie McVicar and also the film Buddy's Song, all starring The Who's Roger Daltrey.

Curbishley's company "Trinifold soon expanded to manage other" well-known artists such as Judas Priest and Robert Plant. It was at the suggestion of Curbishley that Plant disbanded his Shaken 'n' Stirred touring ensemble in the mid-1980s, start afresh with a completely new band and begin writing with different musicians. As a direct result of this, Plant re-emerged as a hugely successful recording and touring entity.

In 1994 Curbishley assumed management of guitarist Jimmy Page. He was integral in the reuniting of Page and Plant, both former members of Led Zeppelin, in 1995. Despite failed attempts by others to reunite the pair, Curbishely was able to persuade the previously-reluctant Plant into working with Page again, resulting in the highly successful Unledded album, video and world tour.

In 2002 Trinifold was acquired by The Sanctuary Group, but Curbishley continued to manage it.

Trinifold Music has published songs recorded by many other artists including Chicago, Kenny Rogers, Atlantic Starr, Karyn White Faith Hill and Kenny Chesney. In 2004, UB40 and Rachel Fuller were added to Trinifold's roster.

Curbishley has lately embarked on more film production, including films such as The Railway Man. He is currently co-producing a film about the life of Keith Moon with Roger Daltrey.
