Very sad news from the Manchester Evening News – the Factory Records, Hacienda and In The City legend Anthony H. Wilson has died. He had been battling kidney cancer for the last couple of months.

Wilson truly was one of the most fascinating, enthusiastic, colourful and downright entertaining figures I’ve ever come across in this business. It’s sad to think he won’t be around to cause mischief at any more music business panels or conventions or to patiently explain once again why Manchester was the centre of the universe. He was one of a kind. Rest in peace.
