...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
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.

JON ANDERSON: South American Tour

Original YES vocalist and songwriter Jon Anderson will be hitting the road next month for a South America tour.

More dates in Argentina to be announced soon as well as a special concert in Chile late November with the Youth Orchestra of Santiago.

In other news, Jon played a special one-off concert on August 8th at the Sadler's Wells Theater in London. This was the first time Jon had performed in the UK since his tour with Rick Wakeman in 2010. "The concert in London was with the Slovakian Chamber Orchestra with the help of my good friendcomposer Peter Machajdik plus a semi acoustic group I performed with a couple of years ago in Bratislava," says Jon. In honor of the UK 2012 Olympics, Jon recorded a vocal version of the Vangelis song "Chariots of Fire" titled "Race To The End", with lyrics penned by Jon.
