Interview with Chris Phipps
I was lucky enough to meet with Chris Phipps who gave up half an hour of his time to talk to me on Saturday following his introductory talk at the Flatpack Festival on the Led Zeppelin film The Song Remains The Same which Capsule programmed as part of their Home of Metal Archive project – http://www.homeofmetal.com. Chris is exactly the type of person the archive aims to highlight and recognise. As you will hear in the podcasts, Chris is a Brummie who has some 50 odd years working in the music industry with some of biggest names in the business and has had a rich mix of jobs, from booking bands to producing radio programmes to making music documentaries, but for me it’s his role as Producer of the legendary Tube TV programme in the 80’s that I’m most thankful to him for (especially for booking The Very Things which got me onto The Tube) it was essential viewing. My only regret…running out of time I could have spent all night talking to Chris. Next time!!
