Steeleye Span has today’s almost forgotten track
In the late 60s and early 70s, the folk-rock movement which had a short lifespan in the mid-60s in America, had taken firm hold in Britain where the bands in the form were closer to folk than they were to rock, initially…Fairport Convention led the way but this spin-off band, Steeleye Span, became very successful there, if less so over here…this is probably their best known recording and it still works close to five decades after it was recorded…
StGreg 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.
