Creation Stories: Riots, Raves And Running A Label
- Hardback - Sidgwick & Jackson
Alan McGee's role in shaping British culture over the past 30 years is hard to overstate. As founded of Creation Records he brought us the music that defined an era. A charismatic Glaswegian who partied just as hard as any of the bands on his notoriously dissolute label, he became a star himself. In 'Creation Stories' he tells his story for the first time, from leaving school at 16 to setting up the Living Room club in London, which showcased many emerging indie bands, from managing the Jesus and Mary Chain to co-founding Creation when he was only 23.
