Don Arden was born in Manchester, England and was a singer and stand-up comic when he was just 13 years old. He had a show business career until 1953, when he became an agent because it is more profitable.
He worked with acts like Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Elkie Brooks and Small Faces. In the 1970s, Arden also had a stint managing Black Sabbath. When he fired Ozzie from the group, Arden’s daughter, Sharon, became Ozzie’s manager (and, subsequently, Ozzie’s wife).
