Shaun Ryder is a bonafide rock star with stories to tell. The Happy Mondays and Black Grape frontman joins me to share his creativity, his back story and why he feels as energised as ever before with Black Grape due to start a fresh UK tour off the back of returning album Pop Voodoo.
Not one to hold back with the truth, Shaun touches upon why trends are the worst thing to follow, how he learned on the job and the key role played by Tony Wilson who appreciated not just their technical abilities, but the whole aura, attitude and appearance of the band and allowed them freedom to develop creatively.
It's a spellbinding glimpse into one of music's most interesting minds.
