It is a chance to tell a modern story about modern Britain in a modern way, something that is absurdly rare. Had he sooner quit his broadcasting career at Granada, would have Factory Records and the Hacienda have survived a little bit longer instead of them shutting down by the end of the 1990s?

Tony paid tribute to the doctors and nurses who cared for him at Manchester Royal Infirmary and Christie in an article he wrote for the M.E.N. earlier this year. Yvette said: "He had the best treatment in the world." Tony told me that all those early hits he wrote with Errol really only came to life when Harvey Hinsley (sadly uncredited) came up with those amazing guitar riffs, which gave each song an immediate H/C identifying sound. Time for a changeThere's always something melancholy about red-letter biographies on Wikipedia. To think, that out of the internet encyclopedia's 100,000 active monthly contributors no-one has taken the time to add in basic biographical information on these landmark figures. One such overlooked artist is Hot Chocolate’s Tony Wilson, who was born on this day in Trinidad in 1947. From Manchester With Love is like Wilson in that it assumes the same of its reader: intelligence, bloody-mindedness, a romantic, revolutionary soul. It requires concentration, mixing, as it does, careful interviewing with flights of fancy, revealing detail with time-travelling description. More than a mind map, the book’s peculiarity and expanse and, yes, love, means it becomes an immersive experience. I found it very moving indeed.

You can buy From Manchester with Love: The Life and Opinions of Tony Wilson from Faber or from your favourite local bookshop. Morley, Paul (13 August 2007). "Tony Wilson. Record label boss and broadcaster with twin passions: music and Manchester". The Guardian. London. Yvette, 38, described how he remained spirited to the end - complaining how annoying it was that everyone was being nice to him when he thought most people saw him as 'a prat'. Thirty-nine-year-old director Michael Winterbottom told writer Frank Cottrell-Boyce that he was thinking of making a film about Factory Records. Frank told Winterbottom that if he got anyone else to write it, he would kill him. He's a Liverpudlian, but he appreciated what set Manchester apart: the sheer madness and self-belief that seemed to be passed from the Sex Pistols to an audience of about 50 Mancunians the night they played the Lesser Free Trade Hall in 1976.You interviewed the people who knew him such as his former wives; his former colleagues from the Granada Television, Factory Records and Hacienda eras; and his children. Was there a common thing that all of your interviewees brought up about Wilson for this book?
