Johnathon King is 74 today - one of the most brilliant, crazy music people in history

He was at Cambridge University when he released his first single, then went to BBC Radio and pirate radio stations like Luxembourg and Caroline, spoke to all the jocks to get them to play it - and "Everyone's Gone To The Moon" became a hit!

He gave a school band called The Anon a new name "Genesis" and produced their first three albums, gave another band their name "10CC" and released their first four albums.

This morning, I honoured one of the greats on "Rocks In Your Head" - and Deb won! How would you have gone?

Johnathon King - he gave himself names like Terry Dactyl and the Dinosaurs and Shag - and had big hits with most not knowing it was him!
