Thursday 12th January
It was Access All Areas at this panel event aimed at anyone wanting to get a foot in the door of the creative industries.
We had a stellar line up of industry experts, each with a unique point of view:
• Jill Furmanovsky, award winning photographer of many major rock artists including Led Zeppelin, The Ramones, Bob Marley, Blondie, The Sex Pistols, and Oasis.
• Martyn Walsh from Inspiral Carpets
• David McGinnis, Head of Mute Song Publishing
• MC Tonn Piper, a trailblazer on the drum n bass scene for many years.
Hosted by John Robb, the panel discussed the highs and lows of their careers in the music business, and offered opinions on what it takes to climb the ladder of success. The event lasted almost two hours: a healthy debate was followed by questions from the audience.
Some audience comments:
“Excellent! Wish you had done this in the 60s and 70s!”
“Very helpful advice and well delivered.Thanks!”
“Great event, great panel, more of this please”
