Sad news indeed. Tony Wilson passed away yesterday.
Founder of the Factory record label, the infamous Hacienda Club and a champion of new talent and the Manchester music scene.
Who knows if there would have ever been a Joy Division, Happy Mondays, etc without him and his vision. I met him a couple of times and he was a really nice guy.
One of the last really passionate people has left us far too early.

Agreed. Anyone who hasn't seen 24 Hour Party People should stop by their neighborhood video store tonight.
