Peter Hook is planning a ’12 foot high’ statue of Tony Wilson to straddle Manchester Salford border
Peter Hook told the manchester Evening news that he is planning a12 foot high statue of Tony Wilson and has launched a fund to pay for it.
Hook told the Manchester Evening News “The main problem with getting a statue up is that everybody expects the council to pay for them, but then they don’t want a statue at the expense of their bins being emptied.
So my idea is to get fans, supporters, of all the bands that Tony helped, to pay for this statue – so it will be the fans who own it too.
The idea is for it to straddle the border – one foot in Salford and one foot in Manchester – just as Tony did in life.”
Would Tony have wanted a statue? what do you think?
