My hero in 2016 is Tony Visconti. His impact on modern culture is so deep that its significance is unfathomable. He's had a hand in so many records that have been the soundtrack of my life, from bands like T. Rex, Sparks, Thin Lizzy, right up to Bowie's last great masterpiece, Blackstar. Tony Rules!
