Tony Wilson, RIP

Factory Records founder Tony Wilson passed away this evening following a long battle with kidney cancer. 

Wilson will be eulogized far and wide in the days ahead, rightfully so, and rather than add to the pile, we'll instead link to the following bit of youtubage.

Suffice to say, when it comes to newsreaders turned label dudes, Wilson's Factory was a much better label than Chuck Scarborough's.
