Alan Mcgee - Alan Mcgee Considers Return From Retirement

Retired rock mogul Alan Mcgee is pondering a return to the music industry in a bid to stem the tide of TV talent show stars created by Simon Cowell.
MCGee co-founded independent label Creation Records and was famous for discovering Oasis in the early 1990s.
He helped the rockers become one of the biggest rock bands of the decade, but turned his back on managing acts when he closed his label, and subsequently retired in 2007.
He has since stayed away from the spotlight and has concentrated on art and setting up a film company, but admits he has been tempted to make a return to music following an offer from Japanese investors.
MCGee is seriously considering the offer after being left unimpressed by the current state of the music charts.
In a blog for The Huffington Post, he writes, "I am also going to meet some people in Japan who want to bring me back into music.
"If I'm honest, I am torn on this but at the same (time) I feel it's almost a public duty to cause chaos in the world of Simon Cowell and co.
"On the flip side, though I do love life in Wales doing my book/film/paintings... then I think why not go and take the meeting and sign up some big bands without deals and the new things out there that I love?
"The upside also is whilst there in Japan, I will see Noel (Gallagher) play the Budokan (Tokyo venue) and Primal Scream play to 40,000 people at a festival. Plus, they say I can sign who I want and they seem to have the cash so in my book it's worth a little look at least."
