Hacienda’s Dave Haslam pays tribute to all-time great Terry Hall
Former Hacienda DJ and music author Dave Haslam has paid tribute to all-time great Terry Hall.
Haslam said: “Terry Hall. One of the all time greats of British music & an icon for a generation. He was unique, deep, funny.
The man who buried for me that cliche “don’t meet your heroes”. I had some wonderful times with Terry. Loved him. It’s that simple. Gutted.”
He added: “He was a hairdresser for a week and a failed bricklayer. A massive MUFC fan. A committed anti-racist and an advocate for mental health causes.
“An incredible frontman, and a brilliant songwriter. He was unique, funny, deep, and one of the all-time greats of British music…
“I’ve missed something off Terry’s CV. In one interview we did he told me “I had a day, well not a day, more like seventeen minutes as a quantity surveyor. It was freezing and he said “Take your hands out of your pocket” and I was like “F**k you” and that was the end of my job.”
