This remarkable song is the result of a peculiarly 21st Century collaboration between two legendary artists: Matt Malley, perhaps best known for his work with Counting Crows, and Jon Anderson, perhaps best known as the singer with Yes. The peculiar thing about this collaboration is that, although it sounds for all the world as if the two artists got together late one night and composed it around the piano, it didn't happen like that at all. In fact, Matt Malley sent the instrumental to Jon Anderson over the internet and the collaboration went from there. Peculiarly, they hadn't even met in the flesh by the time the record was finished. This is a charity, download only single, which is released on iTunes on 19th October.

...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.
