Known for his scathing critical remarks as a judge on "American Idol", Simon Cowell began building his way into fame working at his father's company as a mailroom clerk
at EMI Music Publishing while he was teen. In 1979, he earned a position as an assistant to an A&R executive and was subsequently promoted to become a talent scout. He,
however, left the company in the early 1980s to form E&S Music with his boss at EMI, Ellis Rich. He resigned and teamed up with a friend to establish the independent
label Fanfare Records in 1985, which unfortunately only lasted until 1989. Later that same year, he worked as a consultant at BMG Records.
In 2001, Cowell teamed up with Simon Fuller to produce Britain's popular singing show "Pop Idol", the success of which preceded the debut of its US version, entitled "American Idol", the following year.
