RIP Alan Wise

Legendary Manchester music promoter, a key figure in the post-punk scene and the man there at the birth of Factory Records, Alan Wise has died aged 63.

This sad news comes just three months after Alan's 22 year old daughter tragically took her own life having waited 18 months for NHS counselling for her depression - news I previously blogged about here. There's no medical proof or scientific concept of someone dying of a broken heart but that is most certainly exactly what happened to Alan Wise; yet another victim in this government's failure to provide efficient mental health care.
