The agent now personally represents renowned artists such as Aerosmith, Black Sabbath, Def Leppard, Guns n’ Roses, Kiss, Lenny Kravitz, Maroon 5, Ozzy Osbourne, Pearl Jam, Scorpions, Tool and The Who. In 2015 he was the recipient of the prestigious VIP Classic Rock Award.

Mr MacSween studied chemistry and statistics at the University of Exeter, where he had a first taste of working with bands such as The Who after being elected as Students’ Guild social secretary in 1969. During that time he booked artists who were in their early musical careers like Pink Floyd and Robert Plant’s ‘Band of Joy’. After graduating he worked as an agent at major music booking agencies before founding ITB in 1976.
