After an early career as a singer (he sang backing vocals for Tiny Tim) and actor, he became a publicist for EMI Records in the 1970s. He arranged the Sex Pistols' notorious, expletive-filled appearance on the Today show in 1976. Hall grew up in the East End of London and was a friend of Marc Bolan. He had been with Bolan on the night of his death in 1977.
In 1986 a chance meeting with Steve Perryman led to him becoming a football agent and he built up a roster of clients who included Leon Cort, Robbie Savage, Tim Sherwood, John Scales, Neil Ruddock, Terry Venables, Paul Walsh and Dennis Wise.
