Anthony Wilson RIP

Anthony Wilson passed away yesteday at 1830 following a struggle with Kidney Cancer. Tony was a massive figure in not only Manchester, but the music industry as a whole. He'll be truly missed. While I didn't know him particularly well, I had the Privilege of working in the building next door to his offices a few years ago. At the time I was heavily involved in noWax, and one afternoon I received a call stating "Wilson wants to see you".

I stopped working immediately and walked out the office. Anthony sat me down, explained that he knew about what I was doing with the night, and asked if noWax could go to Liverpool with him the following month to be the official delegate event for his digital media conference "Interactive City". We did the gig, and he was so pleased with the outcome that he asked us to do the same for that September's "In the City" conference.

He helped give me the confidence to get involved with music and promoting club nights. I wouldn't be involved with so many if it hadn't been for his belief in my ability. Thank you Anthony, you'll be missed.
