Musical Chairs – Hugh Lynn

Hugh Lynn was New Zealand’s most successful rock promoter of the 1980s. The legendary concert promoter opened New Zealand’s first punk nightclub, managed Herbs, and worked with the superstars of the day, including David Bowie, Bob Dylan, Mick Jagger, Pink Floyd and R.E.M.

His outdoor concerts broke attendance records and in 1988 he was recognised by the Recording Industry Association of New Zealand with an award for his outstanding contribution to local music.

Musical Chairs takes a trip down Lynn’s memory lane, covering his career, his friendship with Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh.

    Suzanne Nadine Vega (born July 11, 1959) is an American songwriter and singer known for her highly literate[clarification needed] lyrics and eclectic folk-inspired music.

    Two of Vega’s songs (both from her second album Solitude Standing, 1987) reached the top 10 of various international chart listings: “Luka” and “Tom’s Diner”. The latter was originally an a cappella version on Vega’s album, which was then remade in 1990 as a dance track produced by the British dance production team DNA. (Source
