A GUY CALLED GERALD
(REMEMBERING GW AT LEGEND IN MANCHESTER – CIRCA 82/83)
”A lot of records in my collection were a direct result of listening to you playing…We were always trying to get away from the indie tag and wanted to be played in clubs like Legends by DJ’s like yourself”
MARTIN MOSCROP OF A CERTAIN RATIO & SWAMP CHILDREN
“At the time Legend was the closest thing to New York…I loved Greg Wilson as a DJ”
MIKE PICKERING / HACIENDA
‘One of the greatest DJ’s the city has ever known’
CITY LIFE / MANCHESTER
‘The whole b boy scene in Brighton started that night when you lot came down…when you taught me to scratch it was like a 5 minute 'look, that's how you do it' and I did a few cack-handed attempts. Then I went home and spent about the next month just working out how to do it’
(IN CONVERSATION WITH GW, DISCUSSING THEIR MEETING IN 1983)
Electro was a real phenomenon in the UK…Some DJ’s, like Wilson at Legend in Manchester, or future hip hop supreme Tim Westwood at Spats in London switched wholesale to this new sound; many others adopted it as part of their musical menu. By breaking with the past and welcoming the future, it was these renegades of funk who laid the groundwork for both acid house and the UK hip hop scene.
BILL BREWSTER / FRANK BROUGHTON
(FROM THE CENTENARY EDITION OF THEIR BOOK ‘LAST NIGHT A DJ SAVED MY LIFE’ – 2006)
‘Greg Wilson played a huge part in bringing about the 80's northern house explosion, so show some flippin' respec’’
‘One of the North-Wests top DJ’s – you were superb, I’m sure you still are… happy memories of those great All-Dayers in Manchester at The Ritz and Tiffanys in the ‘80’s’
(SEMINAL NORTHERN SOUL DJ CASTS HIS MIND BACK TWO DECADES)
‘Greg was truly inspirational for me. It was so great to hear a musical journey and learn so much about the history of mixing. Every track was a winner and so many I had never heard before’
RALPH LAWSON / BACK TO BASICS (FOLLOWING GW’S ‘COMEBACK’ APPEARANCE IN DECEMBER 2003)
‘You can’t afford to miss legendary 1980’s electro-funk DJ Greg Wilson as he returns to the fray’
THE GUARDIAN GIG GUIDE
‘Greg Wilson is the best DJ for me and always will be’
