Simon Cowell At A Young Age
Simon Phillip Cowell was born on October 7, 1959, in London.
His parents enjoyed fame as his mother Julie Brett (1925–2015), was a ballet dancer and his father, Eric Selig Phillip Cowell (1918–1999), an estate agent, property developer and music industry executive.
Cowell has a younger brother (Nicholas Cowell), three half-brothers, (John, Tony, and Michael Cowell), and a half-sister (June Cowell).
For his education, Simon Cowell exhibited brilliance in his school days.
Along the line, he took up several menial jobs.
Who would have thought that the world-renowned blunt musical judge could hardly keep a job in his youth? Well, Simon didn’t do well working under anyone. For that, his father, who was working as an executive at EMI Music Publishing got him a job in the mail room. Dissatisfied, Simon Cowell left EMI but returned again after failed attempts on other jobs.
In the 1980s he set up his own company and went into music production. Coupled with the rises and falls that came along, Cowell started marking his success in the music industry.
Later on, he signed stars like Five, Westlife and Teletubbies.
Amongst all his works, Cowell is most famous for his role as a judge on the British TV talent competition series Pop Idol, The X Factor, and Britain’s Got Talent, and the American TV talent competition shows American Idol, The X Factor, and America’s Got Talent.
