Chris Rea has today’s almost forgotten track

Chris Rea is among those performers who left a mark over many years of recording, even scoring a big hit or two, without ever becoming the star many of us feel he deserved to be…each and every album contained gems like this song, but, as stated, whether it was by design or not, he always remained little more than a cult artist, but, to be fair, that cult is very large indeed…we just need to be reminded once in awhile…

 

Greg Simpson

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.
