Tony Wilson died Friday August 10th. He created and ran Factory Records – one of the greatest, most inspiring record labels ever. I have every Factory Record ever released, and loved and still love the majority of them. He was also a great producer. A man of impeccable taste, true imagination, inspiration, insight and intuition. When we speak of real people, we are talking about the likes of Tony Wilson.

What a privilege it was to be at the receiving end of such greatness.

Ladies and gentlemen…that is how it was done.
