Brian Lane (born Harvey Freed) is a British music manager. Lane has managed a variety of acts including Katherine Jenkins, Asia, Yes, Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe, A-ha, Vangelis, The Buggles, It Bites, A*Teens and Heather Small. He currently manages Rick Wakeman and Anderson, Rabin and Wakeman.
Lane began managing Yes in 1970, taking over from Roy Flynn who secured a deal with Lane, who worked for the Hemdale Company. Lane continued to manage Yes until the end of their 1980 tour supporting Drama (1980).
Lane was instrumental in arranging for The Buggles, another group who he managed, to join Yes for 1980's Drama. He later helped form and then managed Asia, which emerged from the collapse of Yes in early 1981. Lane came up with the band name having introduced vocalist/bassist John Wetton to ex-Yes guitarist Steve Howe.
In the late 1980s, Lane managed a rival group of former Yes members, Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe (ABWH). Lane also managed GTR, also including Steve Howe. He became manager to Rick Wakeman (a member of Yes and then ABWH) in the 2010s and was announced as the manager of a new supergroup of former Yes members, Anderson, Rabin and Wakeman, in January 2016.
Lane worked in the UK for much of his career, before moving to Scandinavia in the 2000s. In 2015, he became head of United Stage Artists globally outside Scandinavia, trading as United Stage International, with an office in London.
