What do Stevie Winwood, Bob Marley and U2 have in common?


CHRIS BLACKWELL, of course
Just shook off the rain and settled in to listen to Scott Simon’s Weekend Edition Saturday interview with Island Record’s founder, Chris Blackwell. It’s here.. He’s in the States touring behind the publication of his new book about the history of Island at 50. 50!
Whether you think he’s a genuis, madman, vampire, it’s pretty ear-popping to hear the collection of artists back-to-back that Island hosted.
