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.

Going For The One, Again: Jon Davison of Yes (Interview)

Yes CurrentClassic prog-rock band Yes have just announced that they will be playing Auckland’s Aotea Centre on November 10th. The last time they were in town was an historic day for the band…it was the first show with lead singer Jon Davison. This was back in April of 2012. Over the course of the following two years Davison has been accepted by long-term members Chris Squire, Steve Howe, Alan White and Geoff Downes…so much so that they are about to release a new album. Heaven And Earth will see the light of day later this year, but their show in November will find them playing two of their classics, Close To The Edge and Fragile, in their entirety. The 13th Floor’s Marty Duda spoke to Jon Davison and asked him about writing with his veteran bandmates and also about that first show in Auckland two years ago.
