The true story of Alan McGee, a man from a relatively impoverished upbringing, who, against all odds, built a record label from nothing. A record label that built the biggest band in the world during the 1990’s and created an empire that competed against the huge entertainment corporations in the world. Along the way there was bankruptcy, heartache, mental breakdowns, dinners with Tony Blair & Bill Clinton, treachery, treason, drugs, sex and anarchy...oh, and money. Lots and lots of money! Creation Stories tells his story in depth for the first time, from leaving school at sixteen to setting up the Living Room club in London which showcased many emerging indie bands, from managing the Jesus and Mary Chain to co-founding Creation Records when he was only twenty-three. His label brought us acts like My Bloody Valentine, House of Love, Ride and, of course, Primal Scream. Embracing acid house, Alan decamped to Manchester and hung out at the Hacienda and took Creation into the big time with Screamadelica. His drug-induced breakdown, when it came, came hard and dramatic. But as he climbed back to sobriety, he discovered the generation-defining band Oasis and oversaw their rise to become one of the biggest bands in the world. McGee became the figurehead of Britpop and Indie Music worldwide - he set out on a journey that culminated in a revolution of how the entertainment industry is run.
