...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.

MORE ON THE ANDERSON/WAKEMAN/RABIN PROJECT

Jon Anderson’s on-again, off-again recording project with fellow Yes alums Rick Wakeman and Trevor Rabin is apparently back on again. The three are passing around demos, and even contemplating a tour together.

Anderson was a co-founding member of Yes, singing on 19 band projects between 1969-78 and 1983-2001. Anderson last appeared on stage with Yes in 2004, and officially departed four years later. He has since recorded a studio effort and live album with Rick Wakeman, who actually had five separate stints with Yes — in 1971-1974; 1976-1980, 1991-1992; 1995-1997 and 2002-2008.

Trevor Rabin joined Yes just before 1983′s 90125, a project that he led into platinum success on the strength of Yes’ lone No. 1 hit single “Owner of the Lonely Heart.” He remained with Yes through 1994′s Talk, developing a growing creative relationship with Anderson. Rabin never worked with Wakeman on a studio project while with Yes, however, though they duo did tour together as part of the eight-man concert series in support of the 1991 album Union.
