Alan Mcgee - Alan Mcgee Rues Late Retirement

Music mogul Alan Mcgee wishes he'd walked away from the industry after Oasis' triumphant gigs at Britain's Knebworth House, because he became "delusional" with success.
MCGee was head of famed independent label Creation Records and became one of the most powerful men in the British rock scene after discovering the Wonderwall hitmakers in the early 1990s.
He went on to mastermind their huge success before closing down Creation and retiring from the industry in 2000 - but he now regrets keeping the company going after Oasis performed two iconic shows at the open-air Knebworth venue in 1996.
MCGee tells Playlist magazine, "We really should have given up after Knebworth in '96, though. Ego is a horrible thing, but I got one. I was delusional: if it had been up to me, I'd have got Oasis to do a gig from Antarctica."
