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.

As many of you will know, we at Gonzo are publishing some of Dan Wooding’s books. We have already brought out Caped Crusader – Rick Wakeman in the 1970s and Terry Dene: Britain’s First Rock and Roll Rebel, and we will soon be publishing, King Squealer, which Dan co-authored with Maurice O’Mahoney, who was one of the famous, or infamous, super-grasses of the 1970s. That one carries a foreword by Rick Wakeman who got to know O’Mahoney very well. Dan now lives in Lake Forest, California, which is a city just outside of Los Angeles and recently his local paper, The Orange County Register, came to his home to write up a front-page feature about his extraordinary life which has seen him work for some of Fleet Street’s tabloids – The Sunday People and The Sunday People, as well as now being an undercover reporter in many of the world’s hotspots highlighting the plight of persecuted Christians. He also has a radio and TV show in the Los Angeles area. The paper’s photographer took some 90 photos while visiting Dan’s home, and I thought you would like to see this one of him with some of his many books, including some of ours.
