Charles managed his first act, The Blues by Five, when he was 15 years old, and had to list the number of his local telephone call box on business cards. The telephone would be answered by whoever was passing, who would then walk to Charles' house and knock on the window to let him know there was a call for him. In 1967 he moved from Northern Ireland to London, planning to study Civil Engineering, but soon began writing for Belfast based magazine City Week, filing live reviews of Irish groups performing in London, and returned to the music business full time. He then became manager, agent, lyricist and roadie for progressive rock band Fruupp. When the band split up Charles formed a promotion agency, Asgard, with associate Paul Fenn. The agency's first big signing was English punk band the Buzzcocks. Charles' clients now include Tom Waits, Jackson Browne, Crosby, Stills & Nash and Ry Cooder.
