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.

Michael Des Barres releases 'Hot ‘n’ Sticky'

Michael Des Barres is a rock 'n' roll singer, actor and songwriter. Barres is known for playing Murdoc on MacGyverand replaced Robert Palmer in the band Power Station.
Now Barres is releasing his own album,Hot 'n' Sticky. Without any doubts, this album is rock 'n' roll driven and has a loud up front sound right out of the gate.
This type of aggressive and old school rock 'n' roll is not found on the music charts today. Loud amplifiers and electric guitars are being phased out by laptops and beats created through soundboards. Not to say that the art of rock 'n' roll isn't around, it is just not as loud and forward as it was years ago.
Barres is on a mission to bring that old school, old rock 'n' roll style to music fans all around the world.
On songs like "Detective Man," which comes about halfway through the album, it has a similar tone to that of AC/DC mixed with Pearl Jam. The bass is strong and the guitars take over the song.
