#444 - Alan Leach of Shed Seven (Interview Show)



Alan Leach has a conversation with Tom about his journey in music from his early influences to chart success in the 90s, why he decided to leave Shed Seven, in what respect his views differ from Stone Roses frontman, Ian Brown, and his plans for a solo album. NB - This episode was originally recorded as part of Tom's Greatest Music of All Time Podcast, which organically evolved from its inception in early 2020, from a focus on the discussion of music to also exploring pop culture, comedy, entertainment, entrepreneurship, philosophy, science, politics and current affairs commentary. It was renamed as the Tom Cridland Podcast in January 2023.
