...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.

Billy Sherwood has been beamed on board for the newest album from swashbuckling Star Trek star James T. Kirk — er, William Shatner. Sherwood says he is providing the music, while Shatner writes the lyrics.
Shatner, who appeared as Kirk from 1966-69 on television and then in seven Star Trek motion pictures between 1979-94, started a tandem recording career in 1968, with The Transformed Man — featuring dramatic readings of works by William Shakespeare, as well as unique readings of Bob Dylan’s “Mr. Tambourine Man” and the Beatles’ “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.”
Shatner then released a pair of projects in the late 1970s, including a double live album, before returning in the 2000s with Has Been. His latest album was 2011′s Seeking Major Tom, which featured guest appearances by Deep Purple’s Ritchie Blackmore, Asia’s John Wetton, Yes’ Steve Howe and Peter Frampton, among others.
Sherwood, most famous for a stint in the 1990s edition of Yes, says he started writing music in January, and began production on the as-yet-unnamed Shatner project last week.
