Tony Wilson

I only heard this week of Tony Wilson's illness so I'm especially saddened to wake this morning to the news of his death. I never met Tony, but his cultural and musical legacy altered my young life profoundly. Peter Saville's comment is just one of the tributes on the New Order site:
"Tony was an intellectual in popular culture and he brought greatness and importance to it and it was important," he told Newsnight. "He changed it and built it up."
