Nigel Grainge RIP

A hugely respected record company A&R man who signed Thin Lizzy and the Steve Miller Band to Phonogram and then went on the found Ensign Records with the likes of Sinead O’Connor and the Boomtown Rats. He was filmed about three years ago at his home in Santa Monica and the conversation and memories ranged through Philips Records, 10CC, Lizzy, Rock On Records, Phonogram, the Waterboys, Stiff Records, Hendrix, Graham Parker, Charlie Gillett & U2. Some he signed, some were friends.

Of his time he said the best band in London by a mile were Tomorrow who were great live. RIP
