...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.

PINK FLOYD DRUMMER AT OLYMPICS CLOSING

I have been resisting the temptation to do any Olympic-themed postings over the last few weeks. This is partly because I find the excess of the whole thing expensive, and the fact that in a country where people are having their Disability Benefits slashed we can spend £27 million on the opening ceremony alone is highly distasteful and smacks of bread and circuses. However, there are some interesting proggy themed links to the whole affair, and now it is all over I feel happier about writing about it.

Pink Floyd's drummer Nick Mason performed Wish You Were Here at the Olympics Closing Ceremony with pop star Ed Sheeran. Although there was no appearance from David Gilmour or Roger Waters, the "Burning Man" was recreated from the Wish You Were Here album cover and the band were made complete by Mike Rutherford from Genesis and Richard Jones from The Feeling.

Many thanks to those jolly nice chaps at Neptune Pink Floyd for the picture and link:
