One evening, on the 28th April 1963, the flamboyant Andrew Loog Oldham (born on the 29th January 1944, Paddington, London, England), appeared at the club were the Rollings Stones were being with by Eric Easton, and was so entranced by the commercial prospects of Jagger's sexuality that he wrested them away from Gomelsky and, backed by the financial and business clout of agent Eric Easton, became their manager.

With the notorious Allen Klein replacing Eric Easton as Oldham's co-manager, the Rolling Stones consolidated their success by renegotiating their Decca contract.

Upon returning to Preston a few days later in 1963, David John & The Mood spotted posters everywhere advertising them. They were wondering who this lot were, when Paddy Jones informed them that they, in fact, were said band! Jones felt that with a new sound a new name was needed too. He had them go and perform for the John Dell agency, part of the Eric Easton organization, which in turn was a part of the Rolling Stones management.

The second Stones single, I Wanna Be Your Man was written by Lennon and McCarthy and was produced by Eric Easton. Before this single was released the group went on the first tour of the United Kingdom, but not at the top of the bill, Bo Diddley and the Everly Brothers were billed higher.

In August 1971, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Bill Wyman, Charlie Watts, and Brian Jones' father filed a high court writ against ex Stones' manager Andrew Oldham and Eric Easton, charging that they made a secret deal with Decca Records in 1963 to deprive the group of record royalties. The suit alleges that Oldham persuaded Brian Jones to accept six percent of the wholesale record price as the Stones' share while Decca was paying Oldham and Easton 14 percent. At the same time Oldham had a 25 percent management contract with the Stones themselves. The four original Stones plus Lewis Jones are also suing Allen Klein for persuading them to sign over all the North American rights to their songs to a company called Nanker Phelge Music, Inc. The Stones' claim is that they were led to believe they ran the company when in truth it was controlled by Klein.
