AUDIO - PODCAST EP 21 - ALAN MCGEE, CO-FOUNDER OF CREATION RECORDS
… and the man who discovered and signed Oasis.
It’s a special one today and something a little different than usual, but I had a chance meeting with a true god-like genius who is Alan McGee. For those who don’t know, Alan grew up in Glasgow and came down to London as a young man to play in bands and put on club nights. Then he started an incredible record label, Creation Records, which was the soundtrack to my entire life. Alan is probably most famous for discovering Oasis at King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut in Glasgow. He’s also been part of discovering and managing careers of Primal Scream, Teenage Fanclub, My Bloody Valentine, Super Furry Animals, Boo Radleys etc. Now, he has a management career managing bands like Happy Mondays.
I’m really blessed to just spend some time with him and have a chat, so even though it’s a little off-topic I hope you enjoy getting in to his life story and what it means to be an entrepreneur in show-biz, and also get some tips for if you’ve got a dream… go after it, put great things out in to the universe and it will happen.
