I’m not a worrier by nature, and what I do worry about is as trivial as my concern that there’s a generation that might think of this song as being by Judas Priest…I find that band execrable, just as I find the original lineup of Fleetwood Mac to be totally praiseworthy…really, there’s no comparison between the two outfits, and this little post-blues piece of Macadelia is, in my opinion, one of the best songs of their entire storied career…
Greg Simpson firmly believes his career in the music industry officially began on March 14, 1965 when a band gave him ten dollars as commission for helping them find a gig. He hasn’t looked back since then and looks forward to celebrating his fiftieth in 2015 with an enormous party paid for by the hundreds of dollars he’s made since then.
His career has covered all aspects from radio for many years, and including working for record labels, artists and, since 1992,Canadian Music Week where he programs the radio stream and manages all conference streams and events in real time annually. He also attends half a dozen conferences a year doing research for CMW and is generally accepted as a knowledgeable cat with a few stories to tell. At the root of it all, though, is his undying love for music and musicians.
