...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.

“My son asked me if I had an iPad,” he told us. “Yeah, only when I’ve got conjunctivitis.”
Rick, 63, whose re-recording of Journey has been released this week as a special fan pack with Classic Rock magazine, explains: “Playing lots of keyboards at the same time is what I was brought up with.
“My kids range from 27 up to 40-odd. Put a new iPad in front of them and they don’t even need to look at the instructions. Put me in front of a pinball machine and I can knock spots off 'em – they don’t get it!”
