"Kelly was the greatest promotion man I ever met, and I've met many of the greats. He was not afraid to try anything, approach anyone, convince anybody - always with sincere, almost naive, warmth and charm. Kelly befriended Prime Ministers (and their wives), Federal Ministers, Provincial Premiers, CRTC Chairmen (thank you Pierre Juneau), Superstars from Lennon and McCartney to Joe Cocker, Dr. John and Gordon Lightfoot, to Don Francks, Leon Russell and Graham Greene, just as easily as he did everyone he encountered."

Perhaps best known for being the first in North America to release recordings by the Beatles, his greatest contribution as head of Capitol Canada’s A&R department was his enthusiasm for developing a roster of successful Canadian artists that included Anne Murray.
