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.

LINK: Alan White interview

On the Gonzo Daily we have been following the progress of the latest round of Yes promotional interviews. There have been lots of interviews with Chris Squire, but now we have an interview with drummer Alan White, who has been one of my favourite drAdd Imageummers since he appeared onLive Peace in Toronto with John and Yoko...

A Yes with two guys named Jon?

Stranger things have happened. And a lot of them have happened in the 40-plus years of the progressive rock legends; you go through a lot of erasers keeping track of the group's lineup changes.

Lately it's been even more like a British comedy than a British band known for its majestic sound. Original singer Jon Anderson was gravely ill, but recovered.

But the band continued with the singer it recruited from a tribute band.

Then that singer (Benoit David) was replaced by another singer, from a different tribute band.
