Tony Wilson

He co-composed the song "Brother Louie" - a massive hit both for his band Hot Chocolate, and Ian Lloyd (also a bass player) and Stories (with Kenny Aaronson on bass) in 1973.

A producer, vocalist, solo recording artist, and founding member of the British soul / funk / disco / powerhouse which scored consecutive hits from 1970 to 1984, Tony Wilson was a pure pocket player with a deep Fender P tone which got folks on the dance floor. 

Wilson spilt from the band in the mid-70s to pursue a solo career, among other endeavors behind the console and as a writer.
