Anthony Wilson

BBC NEWS | England | Manchester | Anthony Wilson dies from cancer

There are some people whose personalities are so large that for them to die seems a ridiculous notion, and Anthony Wilson was one of those. He was the founder of Factory Records, the man without whom we would quite likely not have had Joy Division and New Order, and much of the Manchester scene that led to the Smiths and much more. And now he’s gone.

Thanks for all the music, Tony.
