R.I.P. - Tony Wilson

I cannot believe Tony Wilson is dead. He's the kind of guy you thought would be here forever. The "mad genius" of the "Mad"chester music scene championed many of my favorite bands - Joy Division, New Order, and the Happy Mondays - and helped put Manchester on the musical map. He always had something interesting to say (see my post about an "intimate conversation" he had with Shaun Ryder a couple of years ago) and will be missed.
