What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

DAN WOODING: Caped Crusader -- Rick Wakeman in the 1970s

Elton John, Dan Wooding and Rick Wakeman

I have been really busy lately talking on radio and TV in both the US and the UK about my latest book, Caped Crusader – Rick Wakeman in the 1970s which was recently published by the Gonzo Media Group in the UK with a foreword by (Sir) Elton John (See picture taken at the time of the first edition of the book).

My most recent interview was with Sior Coleman at BBC Radio WM (West Midlands), a station in Birmingham, England, where I was raised. Then on Thursday, July 26th I will be on Janet Parshall’s show on the Moody Radio Network to talk about the book. You can hear it, or get details of the time I will be on, by going to: http://www.moodyradio.org/inthemarketwithjanetparshall.

This authorized biography of my dear friend Rick Wakeman, who is arguably the world’s greatest rock keyboardist, is lavishly illustrated with dozens of photos from Wakeman’s extraordinary career which includes the time his career took off when he joined the folk group, Strawbs, in 1969, and played on three of their albums, and later rose to greater heights during his times with the British super group, Yes.

To purchase a copy of “Caped Crusader” just go to: http://www.amazon.com/CAPED-CRUSADER-Rick-Wakeman-1970s/dp/1908728302/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1335474883&sr=1-1
