RIP Tony Wilson

I met him in passing once, at a music and the internet waffle-shop I went to when I was working at Sanctuary – he was there to argue with a man from the BPI about their prosecution of music downloaders – emblematic perhaps of his entire career – arguing against the accepted wisdom of the music industry, and what it considers “good business”. He may not have got as rich as another man might have in his position, but it was obvious that what he cared about was the music. There should be more people like him in the music biz.
