...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.

Grammy-winning rock band YES to perform at Tioga Downs on July 5

On July 5, and just days away from the launch of their next U.S. tour, members from the iconic and Grammy-winning rock band YES will perform at Tioga Downs in Nichols, N.Y. beginning at 8 p.m. The band will take the stage with guitarist Steve Howe, singer Jon Davison, drummer Alan White, keyboardist Geoff Downes, and bassist Chris Squire and perform two of their classic albums in their entirety - 1971s "Fragile" and 1972s "Close to the Edge."

In a recent interview with keyboardist Geoff Downes, he noted that following the July 5 performance at Tioga Downs they will tour around the Northeast, and then head out West. "We will do about 30 shows," said Downes during the interview.

The Tioga Downs performance also nears the date of their newest album to be released on July 22, titled "Heaven & Earth".

Having sold nearly 40 million albums in a career that has spanned more than four decades, "Heaven & Earth", on Frontier Records, will continue the tradition of symphonic progressive rock that remains timelessly fresh and innovative. The record is available now for pre-order on Amazon, and contains eight new tracks, each of which boasts the unique musicianship and craftsmanship that have come to be known as "the YES sound."

For "Heaven & Earth," YES teamed up with legendary Grammy Award winner Roy Thomas Baker (Queen, The Cars, Guns N' Roses, Foreigner, Smashing Pumpkins, Alice Cooper, etc.), who handled the production and Billy Sherwood (Toto, Paul Rodgers, Air Supply, etc.) who mixed the album. Also onboard is long-time YES artist, the world-renowned Roger Dean, who again brings his masterful artistic creativity to the album's cover art and packaging.
