November 27th will mark 70 years since the birth of Jimi Hendrix , the man who changed electric guitar and rock and roll forever. Throughout November, CBS Local will  remember the legendary musician’s life and career.
While many musicians were influenced by Hendrix, Motorhead frontman Lemmy knew the man: He actually worked as a roadie for Jimi in the 1960s before joining Hawkwind (and ultimately forming Motorhead). He spent time with the man both in the studio and on the stage, and he told CBS Local that Hendrix was a big influence on him as a vocalist.

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.
