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.

Exploring the music is how Mayall keeps on delivering

John Mayall
John Mayall makes music sound as good as if he has all the time in the world – but he’s still a man in a hurry.
Currently celebrating his 80th anniversary year with shows galore, he has 44 more gigs to play before he lights up Birmingham’s Symphony Hall on Bonfire Night.
By then, he’ll be less than a month away from his 81st birthday, but he hopes the desire to move onwards and upwards in the musical firmament will still be burning as brightly as ever.
His father was a guitarist and son Gaz has been running his own club in London for 15 years – Gaz’s Rockin’ Blues based at St Moritz in Wardour Street.
So music is in the Mayall family genes and, he feels, it’s a subject that cannot be taught conventionally.
