From 16 to 60 in 44 Years Reconnecting with Life from the Sixties

Written by Val Weedon

There is no doubt the 1960’s were a great time for music, with a number of bands from that time becoming huge influences on musicians today.  I was fortunate enough to be around the scene working for the infamous Don Arden and the booking agents Galaxy Entertainments

I’ve never seen Duffy in concert. My biggest best-friend has; he got to see her in Cardiff.

Alex Chilton – Remembers

Written by Alan McGee

The death of Alex Chilton last week was upsetting, saddening and shocking. I guess I never thought Chilton would die. His influence on my life and Creation Records is inestimable. A highlight of the Creation years was reissuing Chilton's great lost album, 1970, and having him play on Teenage Fanclub's Ain't That Enough (Chilton later joined the band in 1996 for what was an iconic gig).

Willie Nelson – The Outlaw

Written by Alan McGee
 Willie Nelson Alan McGee  ZANI 1.

One song that has been making a welcome return on my iPod is Willie Nelson's '82 version of Always on my Mind. A beautiful and laconic reading of the song made famous by Elvis Presley, it reminded me of what an iconoclast Nelson still is. This decade has been an interesting one for him.
