...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.

Grace Slick, Jefferson Airplane Diva, Recalls SF’s Summer Of Love

Grace Slick Art ExhibitionSAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) — Grace Slick was the queen of rock. She and the Jefferson Airplane’s “White Rabbit” – the anthem of the acid rock era. That’s a notion Slick says “sounds weird.”
“Weird” to the now 73-year-old Grace Slick because it still surprises her how big the song became. Her inspiration for “White Rabbit” was “Alice in Wonderland” and composer Maurice Ravel’s “Bolero” which is a Spanish march.
“It isn’t even rock ‘n’ roll,” she says. “And when RCA made a single out of it I thought that’s just amazing. And the thing sold and I thought ‘wow’ there’s a lot more screwballs than I thought there were.”
