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.

Rick Wakeman Gloucestershire concerts 'will be unique'

Rick WakemanKeyboard wizard Rick Wakeman has said concerts to be performed in Gloucestershire this weekend will never be repeated because "it's too costly". The prog rock musician will play at Blackfriars Priory in Gloucester and at The Centaur in Cheltenham as part of a Medieval Mystery Play Festival. The Cheltenham gigs will feature Cheltenham Symphony Orchestra and a cathedral choir. "They are going to be unique. They're not going to be done again," he said.At two small concerts at Blackfriars Priory on Saturday evening, Wakeman will perform with two of his sons, Oliver and Adam, and his daughter Jemma.
Two further concerts at The Centaur on Sunday and Monday will feature Cheltenham Symphony Orchestra and a cathedral choir playing pieces of music from his three famous 1970s albums - The Myths and Legends of King Arthur, Journey to the Centre of the Earth and The Six Wives of King Henry VIII.
