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, Linda Perry, Sara Gilbert Spoof TV Talent Shows in 'American't Idol'

Linda Perry, whose reality show about the artistic process, Make or Break: The Linda Perry Project, is currently running on VH1, has been very vocal about her disdain for more traditional TV talent competitions like American Idol and The Voice. Recently, whenspeaking to Yahoo Music's Reality Rocks, she said: "American Idol is a machine. It's American Marketing. As for The Voice, every time the chair spins, I'm sure they hear 'cha-ching.' Because that's not about music at all, either."
In that same interview, Linda claimed if she were "allowed to take over" American Idol, she "could give them a show that they couldn't believe. It would be massive. It would be huge. It would be bigger than what they are doing now. Because it would be real, and it would be honest. And everybody would stay tuned."
