...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 IS OVERWHELMED

Yesterday was my 53rd birthday, and I was overwhelmed by the sheer volume of good wishes that arrived on my Facebook page and in my email inbox. I didn't realise how many people read the Gonzo Daily and the other things that I edit, every day, so much that we have become part of their lives.

I feel very humble. Thank you my friends.

I will only single out one message - not because the writer, Michael Des Barres, is any more or less important to me than any of the rest of you all, but because he said in one sentance, what I have been trying to say in tens of thousands of words for years.

"WE ARE IN THE FRONT LINES OF A CHARGE AGAINST MEDIOCRITY AND COMPLACENCY. SO LET'S GALLOP ACROSS THE FIELDS OF BATTLE WITH FLAG UNFURLED. THE CHARGE OF THE HEAVY BRIGADE,INDEED."

Right on brother!

Thank you my dears, from the bottom of my heart. And God bless you all!
