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.

CATHY RICHARDSON has done it all in the music industry. Currently the lead singer for Jefferson Starship, the talented singer tells us “What I live for…”

[By Monica Harris]

In an era of one-hit wonders and autotune, Cathy Richardson continues to wow audiences with her stunning live performances, powerhouse voice and, as we discovered in our interview, a good sense of humor. The current lead singer for Jefferson Starship, one half of The Macrodots, past Janis Joplin ‘channeler’ in “Love Janis,” and producer of her own albums for The Cathy Richardson Band, this singer has done it all and explains that performing live is what she lives for.

Q. Cathy, some have claimed you have the “best female voice in rock today.” How does that make you feel?
CATHY: It feels great but I think that title sometimes overshadows the fact that I am also one of the world’s premiere cowbellists!
Q. You are currently touring, with dates set in locations all across the world. Any particular place you are most excited to see?
CATHY: I love the whole world, but what I am really hoping for is the opportunity to someday play on other planets. Or other dimensions, where it’s possible that I may already be very famous.

...and check out the Gonzo Artist Page for Jefferson Starship you know it makes sense.
