Joe Meek at 75

I love reading alternate history, especially of subjects I know a little about, and The Naked Maja‘s “had he lived” account of music producer Joe Meek’s career after 1967 does a pretty good job of it.

“One day Syd came in with some funny-looking pills which he said some German mates had given him. I took one look at them and immediately flushed them down the toilet. Syd was just about ready to take a swing at me, but ever since then he’s thanked me for doing that, almost on a daily basis.”

It gets a bit silly towards the end though.
