Critically acclaimed as one of the best music books of all time, this is the true, inside story of Creation Records -- and of the last twenty years of British music. Late in 1999, Alan McGee announced that he was to sell his record label -- Creation Records. The decision brought to an end an extraordinary chapter in British rock history. The Creation Records Story is in equal parts black comedy, tragedy, farce and urban myth, laced with large, large helpings of sex, drugs and rock'n'roll. It's the tale of how a Scottish train driver left his job in 1980 and moved to London to start a record label. Since then he has developed -- and shaken -- a spectacular drug habit, suffered a nervous breakdown, become a millionaire and, famously, visited 10 Downing Street. He's also, more importantly, discovered and nurtured fantastical, iconic rock bands . . . such as Oasis and Primal Scream.
