Managerobit: Linda Stein

The former Ramones manager Linda Stein has been murdered.

The former wife of Seymour Stein - they met on a blind date - Linda co-managed the Ramones during a period when she and her husband worked together on the Sire roster. After the pair divorced (they remained close friends) Linda reinvented herself as an estate agent, earning the sobriquet "realtor to the stars" after rehoming the likes of Sting and Andrew Lloyd Webber.

New York police say Stein was bludgeoned to death in her home on Fifth Avenue on Tuesday night.
