Quick, what's your dream supergroup, living or dead? When I was a big prog nerd, mine was Peter Gabriel on vocals and lyrics, David Gilmour and Robert Fripp on guitar, Geddy Lee on bass, Bill Bruford on drums, Tony Levin on Chapman stick, and Rick Wakeman on keys. Come to think of it, that still sounds awesome.
But if you're a bit more realistic than I am, did you know that some of your dreams may have already almost come true?
Yes, there's been many cases where fantasy pairings almost happened and for whatever reason just didn't. No, your bizarre desire to hear a Ratt, Tesla and Dokken supergroup never happened and stop asking for it because that's terrible. But if any of these were in your head, well, here's what could have been.

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.
