Alan McGee, the founder of Creation Records and former manager to many famous bands, including the Jesus and Mary Chain, The Libertines, Mogwai, and Primal Scream, started a row with music legend Brian Eno on Twitter.
Just after midnight on Monday, McGee posted: “@Brian_Eno put on any record you have ever produced brian if you want people to sleep.was it your idea to dress up coldplay as the beatles.” McGee continued to jab Eno after getting no immediate reply, saying he “should have stuck to the art installations” and “what boring sh*t are you going to produce next brian old bean? or should i say obnoxious c*nt”
Finally, Eno replied to the insulting tweets, writing simply, “@alanjmcgee F*ck off, wanker.”
And McGee’s inevitable reply: “morning brian wondered when you would wake up when are you going to make a decent record again it was 1972 was the last one c*nt”
Since then, it’s been all quiet on the Twitter front.
