Anthony Wilson, the music mogul behind some of Manchester’s most successful bands, has died of cancer.
The Salford-born entrepreneur, who managed New Order, Joy Division and the Happy Mondays, was diagnosed last year during a routine visit to the doctor.
The 57-year-old, who launched Factory records and the Hacienda nightclub, underwent emergency surgery in January to remove a kidney.
He passed away on Friday evening in hospital.
