...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.

Jon Anderson Shares Some Wonderous Stories

Review:Joseph Suto
Once it was announced that former Yes singer Jon Anderson was coming to the Bear’s Den, the tickets went like hotcakes. Anderson’s one man show had last played the intimate venue some four odd years ago. Since that time Anderson has expanded his set and rotated a few songs in and out to keep it fresh. As he did the last time he was here, Anderson was surrounded only by a few guitars, a keyboard, a ukelele and a few other instruments.
Anderson began with “Sun Is Calling” from his Open EP to kick things off before merging into “Yours Is No Disgrace.” Anderson explained how he would perform several Yes songs manner of how he brought them to the band, mainly stripped down and in a storytellers type format.
Anderson included a wide variety of music including covers of Simon and Garfunkel (America) as well as Bob Marley & The Wailers (One Love). He also played some songs from his collaboration with Greek composer Vangelis as well as some solo material. Anderson told some stories on how he met Vangelis and mentioned how he auditioned for Yes at one point but was turned down by the band.
