...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.

  1. " kindly gifted" not according to Squire, these items were essentially stolen by his " disgusting , greedy" ex wife and his kids who seem to be " entitiled" according to Squire the entitled acusation is mine.

  2. Many of the items were damaged by water. The most expensive an one of the most important and UNDAMAGED pieces was returned to him. I'm sure if he legally could have stopped the auction he would have. Division of property in a divorce can lead to hurt feelings.

  3. However I do love Chris by the way.
